Yesterday we caught the ferry to Dumbo but as well as going to the Jane's carousel we headed west along the waterfront towards Pier 6. On the way is the old navy vessel you can make a free tour of. A transporter during the Vietnam War, the IX 514 is now used to train the pilots who take tourists on sight seeing flights over the City. They land their helicopters on the deck which is about the size of a tennis court. Xave enjoyed it, but found some of it a bit scary and he isn't ready for a day on the USS Intrepid Museum yet. By the way, it didn't end up raining.

Yesterday was a beautiful autumn day. We rented this Cadillac ATS and headed north out of the City on the Hutchinson Parkway for an hour to the Nature Center in Connecticut. We did the same thing last fall, so the pics may look familiar. They have working a farm and an adventure play ground so we had a lot of fun

We won't be able to watch the game live: Fox is showing it on one of their channels that our cable provider does not carry. We would need a $20/month subscription to Fox Soccer 2 Go to watch it online, and that would just be too politically incorrect. So we will watch it from Kate's TV in Sydney via FaceTime. We would trade off another 43 years in the wilderness for victory tomorrow. Glory Glory to South Sydney.
