Bill loves being an over-the-road truck driver. It is a respectable living, contributing to the economy. As a long distance trucker Bill also is able to see and experience many interesting things. Every day is different. Of course there are pros and cons to that; some days are definitely better than others.
This past weekend, Bill was stranded in He was in Jersey City, New Jersey. He made his delivery, a last minute one, on time. However, he had to wait for the receiver to open to accept the delivery. It being a Sunday, he had a long wait. This happens in trucking. It makes it difficult when you are living in the truck, as you can’t exactly plan an outing under the circumstances.
Bill decided to make the most of it and go for a walk. He came upon Liberty State Park, and took the path marked Liberty Walk. It was a two mile walk, well maintained and scenic.
There were many varieties of flowers
& some butterflies, as well.
At the end of the walk is the Liberty Harbor, where the Hudson River opens into the Upper Bay area. From here, you have a good view of some special sights.
The Manhattan Skyline, New York
Ellis Island & the Statue of Liberty
I was so touched by these pictures, never having seen this area of the United States. I am a proud American, and a proud trucker’s wife. Thanks, Bill. Be safe!
