An early morning flight saw us depart from Edinburgh Airport and arrive in JFK Airport in the afternoon. First stop after checking into the hotel was the bright lights of Times Square and dinner at Planet Hollywood.
Day 2 was a Circle Line boat cruise around the island where we saw the city from a different perspective. We went under the famous Brooklyn Bridge, saw the Statue of Liberty and the new Freedom Tower at Ground Zero.
We then had our first subway trip down to the financial district to meet our guide for our walking tour, which took in the Federal Reserve Bank, the Sock Exchange and Ground Zero. It was then quickly back on the subway for a visit up the Empire State Building for some breath-taking views.
The Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Group completed their Qualifying Expedition over the weekend. It took place in the Lammermuir Hills. They walked from near Lauder to a village in East Lothian called Gifford and covered a total of 51 kilometres in all. They all passed and were complimented on their slick navigation and campcraft skills. It was a memorable weekend with some lovely weather and scenery.
