Traveler Cruises New York Harbor

We were up early on this cold, windy and rainy day- the Girls chose a perfect day for a Harbor Cruise!

Jill was so engrossed in her iPhone that she almost didn't notice me slipping off of her shoulder! But, of course, she caught me- unlike Sally. Hey Jill, check the weather on that thing- is it safe to go on a boat today? Maybe we should do some shopping on 5th Avenue instead?

There is Ellis Island! Tony's mother and father came through there when they arrived from Hungary in the early 1920's...

Lady Liberty! She is so beautiful...

The Brooklyn Bridge. Sally tried to sell me a piece of the bridge, but Jill told me not to listen to her. So, I didn't.

That is the United Nations building.

Gosh, what a brilliant boat ride! That's not as fancy as our Tower Bridge, but it's still fancy!

Jovan Vladimir or John Vladimir (Serbian Cyrillic: Јован Владимир; died 22 May 1016) was ruler of Duklja, the most powerful Serbian principality of the time, from around 1000 to 1016. He ruled during the protracted war between the Byzantine Empire and the First Bulgarian Empire. His close relationship with Byzantium did not save Duklja from the expansionist Tsar Samuel of Bulgaria, who conquered the principality in around 1010 and took Jovan Vladimir prisoner. A medieval chronicle asserts that Samuel's daughter, Theodora Kosara, fell in love with Vladimir and begged her father for his hand. The tsar allowed the marriage and returned Duklja to Vladimir, who ruled as his vassal.deals edinburgh hotelsben ten games
