New York City:Day Three

On our final day in New York City, we decided to culminate our trip true to our nature, as shameless, full fledged, Southern tourists. Loading up on a double-decker bus in barely double digit weather, we took in all the sights with wide-eyed appreciation.

Statue of Liberty:

Wall Street

Empire State building. Please do not leave backpacks unattended.

Protesters. Don't get me started.

Smurfette walking along Park Avenue. Huh?

After our tour came to an end, we headed back to our hotel to thaw. Later that night we went to the Minskoff Theatre to see the Lion King, a spectacular production we will never forget.

Our trip was all that we had hoped for and then some, creating lifetime memories in a city we came to love. As we headed to the airport the next morning, I couldn't help but smile at one final sign that offered this last, fitting reminder:

I believe I will.
