The Norwegian Epic Arrives in Chelsea





I love the little red tug boat


The Norwegian Epic sailing up the Hudson in exactly the same place as the famous airplane drifted down.....
It had just crossed the Atlantic for the first time. I was standing waving like mad but don't think my brother and his wife could see me and the dog!

How amazing! A HUGE ship! Bet they had a lovely vacation! How was your first trans-Alantic? I've flown but not over the big pond! I wonder...what that is like? Love the pics. That little tugboat...does it pull those Huge ships into port? They should rename this Lucky Bay!

Lovely! It just screams adventure and fun!

My son is on his last cruise ship gig in a band, winding up in a couple of weeks. He's had the time of his life in many places.

Did you know you can get paid to be an on-ship writer, or dance partner?

That ship is just jaw-dropping HUGE! The bright little tug boat is quite a contrast in size and color to that big white backside. What an event to have a whole city come floating along the river.

Good grief that is the most enormous ship I've ever seen!

Famous plane?

That ship is just enormous. Thanks for visiting me at Haliburton Hill. Hope you're managing with the extreme temperatures.

That's so neat!
I really enjoy your pictures of New York. I miss living down near there. Now that I'm moving to the midwest I'm sure I'll appreciate your photos even more!

It is hard to comprehend how such a huge ship stays afloat. I would love to go on board if only for a day.
