fireworks plus

21st June night was the annual fireworks over Detroit river. It’s a joint show from three boats by Canada and US. We drove to the river side from Windsor, carrying a sleeping bag and loads of munches and drinks, and settled down on a spot.

A carnival atmosphere there, and for the first time after landing in Canada i get to see a big crowd of people.



After quite a wait, the sun began to set.



It was 9 o’clock by then. In about an hour, it became dark and the show started. It was grand. Here are some of the shots.







Then to US--New York and New Jersey. We went out on a ferry.

Ellis island.


Here’s us in the boat.


Heading towards the Statue of Liberty.



The same night we drove to Time Square, New York. This is how it looked after 11 in the night.



They say the city never sleeps.

Later an outing to Manhattan Central Park

by Metro.



And then to Jones Beach on Atlantic Ocean


Getting quite wet



Followed by a big Mexican dinner.







Life is fun at times, isn’t it?

I’m immensely thankful to God, people from churches, and family members, who gave us this wonderful vacation
