Tomorrow is the big day! Tomorrow we leave New York for the last time, for a very long time. We begin our trip to Iowa. To say we’re excited is an understatement. We are thrilled to be leaving Long Island behind and most of what comes with it (the traffic, the high cost of living, the upheaval for Tim at work). But I’d be a liar if I said that we weren’t going to miss some parts of Long Island. We have met some wonderful people that we call friends and we had some great adventures. The kids are really upset to be moving so far from New York City and I think it’s going to be more than a little weird not to be able to have a less than two hour drive to the ocean. But before we head out I wanted to say “thanks” to the things we did enjoy during our short time here.
We beached. We beached often.
Finally seeing the Statue of Liberty was a highlight for me and a bucket list check.
We took the kids to Manhattan several times. This was the first time.
We communed with nature.
We said “good bye” to the ocean. Maybe the next one we see will be the Pacific.
Good bye, Long Island! It’s been a real experience.
