OT: From Liberty State Park in NJ I took these pictures of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
It just seemed appropriate that we visited this area the weekend that we’re celebrating Columbus discovering America.
We do know that America was already here and inhabited. In fact, the Wampanoag tribe of Martha’s Vineyard and southeastern Massachusetts are said to have lived at Aquinnah for at least 10,000 years before Columbus arrived.
Many immigrants came past the Statue of Liberty to Ellis Island to discover their own America. My husband’s parents were among those who came here from Germany many years ago.
Happy Columbus Day.
