The Ellefsrod in Manhattan! The vacation 2000 took place in Big Apple, Cape Cod, Upstate NY and Berkshires. Please feel free to play "find four Waldos" on this picture taken under lousy light conditions at Time Square.

Ferrying towards Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty. Ellis Island used to be where all the immigrants landed before being squirted all around the US. This was before the NY Yellow Cabs took over as the immigrants landing place. All of you knew that Staue of Liberty was a gift from the French Republic and was assembled in NY but built in France . . .

Weather was attempting to please vistors from Scandivia by keeping a shielding cloud cover in fornt of the sun (those U-V's were never healthy un the first hand). And to further please us, it cooled us further by splashing some water at us. Saved us for that annoying drive towards the seaside beaches every day.

Listen hard, and you may hear Roberts "Brrrrrrrrrr" from underneath his blue lips. Marconi Beach invariably turned Roberts lips blue.

Quite contrary to what we were warned about, it was possible to get out of the Cape on a Saturday. But only by lots of patience. The vehicle headed towards Upstate NY, Schenectady and the Reppens.
