On Monday we were up early to pack up and eat as much breakfast as we could before it was time to leave. Jane and Jaeda drove us to the metro station, where we grabbed the red line to South Station. There we bought Fung Wah tickets to NYC, and 30 minutes later we were on the bus and out of there. Once in New York, we set off walking towards Pier 11. A friendly police officer pointed us in the right direction. We stopped for an overpriced lunch, and then waited on the ferry. The ferry was great. It was mostly empty, the sea was calm, and we had some great views of the skyline and shipping. It dropped us off in Atlantic Highlands where we encountered the only problem of our day of travelling. The cab place we walked to didn’t have an office there, just a mailbox. So back to trusty payphones, we called a different cab company and they had a cab to us in no time. He got us to Shannon’s house without delay, and thus ended our travelling.
Shannon has a sweet house, very nice looking, swimming pool, lots of computers, fast Internet, and a crazy bed that sets itself up. Check out the movie. It’s comfortable, too. There is also a very cute black cat, Mosi. For dinner we went out together with Shannon, Erica (her roommate), and Sam (Erica’s sister). I had a tasty burger at Barnacle Bill’s, and everybody had a good time.
