New York – Day 6

Wow. I can’t believe it’s been 6 days. It feels like 18. We’ve done so much and have remained pretty-well isolated from home so it feels like we’ve been gone forever.

We had some last-minute shopping to take care of, then off to Newark. We flew in what has become a significantly out-dated plane on Air Canada. There wasn’t even old-school music service for entertainment. The one thing that made up for it was the insanely awesome view of New York at night from the sky. Manhattan at night is spectacular, but seeing however many boroughs we saw all lit up was simply amazing.

We landed at the Dorval airport in Montreal and proceeded to be baffled by the intructions, signage and layout. I’m sure when you’ve done it once or twice, you get the hang of it, but for a first-time trip, it can be a little confusing. Then a quick hop to Halifax, picked up our lugage then made it home by 1:00 am.

Luckily, we turned the TV to Saturday Night Live and were able to catch the sketch they had been rehearsing while we took our tour of the NBC studios the day before. It was a wonderful bit of icing on the cake for the end of our vacation. Overall it was tons of fun. I think we averages about 60 blocks of walking per day and can really feel it now. One thing’s for certain though. We’re going again because we didn’t get a chance to see anywhere near as much as we wanted
