It was a very early morning flight to New York City, we were up and out at 4:15. The van had been loaded the night before with the luggage we wouldn’t need that morning. We had a lot of luggage with us due to the length of time we would be in New York and the 12-day cruise to the Southern Caribbean. Once the sun came up it was a cloudy day. As we traveled above the clouds, they looked very strange with the sun shining on them. Steve had scheduled Airport Limo Service to pick us up at the airport. It was a very nice 45 minutes from LaGuardia Airport to Hampton Inn Manhattan 35th Street/Empire State Building hotel.
Steve, Holan and I had been to New York at different time but Dee had never seen The Big Apple. It was fun seeing the city again through someone who had not seen it. The honking horns from the traffic took Dee by surprise as well as the tall buildings.
