Not the only one I’ll bring back.

Landing at Newark Airport.

That little blob may be the Statue of Liberty

So we climbed it.

And visited Hamilton Park in New Jersey

Everything is legal in New Jersey!

(Accept apparently bicycling, skateboarding, littering, alcohol, ball playing, glass bottles, picnicking, and dogs).

That view.

Dinner was a pizza place in New Jersey that did gluten free.

Real, saucy, New York/New Jersey tasting pizza!

Ready for tomorrow.
