Governor’s Island

There is so much to do in the city in the summertime that we, of course, didn’t get to it all. (Next year for the Victorian Gardens amusement park in Central Park, I swear.)

But one of the cool things we did get to do was visit Governor’s Island.

We took a ferry from downtown and landed on the old Army barracks, which is surrounded by the invigoratingly salty smell of the Hudson River estuary and views of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the Statue of Liberty. We saw some dancers, played some putt-putt, experienced some art, and walked through the greens. It was a beautiful day, one of those cool, sunny, blue-skied summer days that make you happy to be alive.

Here are a few shots and short video of my little rascal.
