Busy day 1

After a bit of an early night on Sat the plan for Sunday was to make an early start and see as much of this city as we could handle in a day.  Started off with a Mcdonalds breakfast (not my suggestion, bet you can guess who was responsible!).  We headed to the empire state building which made us feel at home with the long queues.  Liam just about managed to keep his pants clean while we were up there, my  threats of the building swaying in the wind proved to be wrong (yesterday at least).

Then it was on to the USS intrepid, a pretty big aircraft carrier docked in one of the piers on the Hudson River, and it was here that Liam got friendly with a black bird (see photo).  After this decided to take the speedboat tour down to the statue of liberty and back on "the beast".

Finally, made a stop into Madame Tussaud's so Liam could get his photo taken with R Pats, and James Bond, and Elton John, and well, just about every bloody waxwork in the place.  Neither of has have been to such a place before, and found it all very confusing, must have said "excuse me" to about 10 of the waxworks in our effort to weave between everyone.
