We got up early this morning, braving another grey rainy day, and went down to Battery Park and caught the ferry out past the Statue of Liberty to Ellis Island where we spent several hours steeped in immigration history. Not that either of us have ancestors who came thru Ellis Island. But it was very interesting anyway.

Then we headed to Chinatown and had lunch. Russell wasn't inclined to stick around and wander through the many shops so we headed uptown to the Sex Museum. It wasn't as interesting at the one in Miami, but mostly because I am more artefact oriented than media oriented. There was quite a history of sex in film. There was an exhibit on sex in the animal kingdom with lots of fun facts. And a few smaller exhibits on things like fetish wear. It was dry and had places to sit down from time to time so it worked for me. *LOL*

Now I'm going to go upstairs and eat my left-over 1/2 a cuban sandwich from dinner last night and put my feet up before we go out to see the 39 Steps tonight at 8pm.

I think I need a vacation from my vacation!

This sounds like a lovely day. A perfect sight-seeing day in New York, in fact.

And you are *so* lucky to miss this f***ing heat wave.
