Seraphim takes Manhattan

5am Saturday. Sunrise over Manhattan, New York City.
Pretty impressive.

Early Sunday we headed up Upper Bay, passed Staten Island and Brooklyn, to a fog clad Manhattan.

Gradually the Statue of Liberty and then the tip of Manhattan Island revealed itself.

Sailing past the Statue of Liberty was an amazing moment. Paris was really thrilling. This too. John and I high fived. We were in New York. Way to go, to us.

New York. New York. So good they named it twice. Encore to that.

On up the Hudson River where hundreds of skyscrapers and upmarket apartment blocks put their best facades forward competing for light and status.

At 79th Street Yacht Basin we secured a buoy for just $30 a night.

79th Street, the Upper West Side, the middle of Manhattan.
