Wes and I drove to Queens on Sunday to visit Corey, Daisy, and Desi. On the way down, we received a  text from Corey asking if we’d like to go on a boat ride. That sounded like fun, so soon after arriving, we took the subway into Manhattan. We had to walk four blocks, stopping to pick up sandwiches and have a picnic, before boarding the boat. We started out topside, but the drizzle and wind quickly drove us inside downstairs where we had a good view from large windows.  We kept stepping outside to sightsee and take pictures,

then retreating inside to warm up.There was beautiful shoreline to photographand an interesting H shaped apartment building, looking like it was built crookedly, but wasn’t.

The UN building.
I had always wanted to see the little red lighthouse under the George Washington bridge, and when the boat went under “The George”, I finally saw it, After leaving the boat, we took a bus instead of walking in the rain, back to where we boarded the subway again for a trip to Jackson Heights  and dinner in a Vietnamese restaurant.  This pucture of Desi was taken in the park where we had our picnic lunch.  The lounge chair was made of cement, and was suprisingly comfortable, if a bit hard. 

We traveled in a variety of ways yesterday: car, train, bus, and boat. That doesn’t happen very often.  We had a great time and since neither Corey nor Wes has visited the UN, that trip is in our future.
