Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? Well NYC will be filled with them this week as it celebrates another year of Fleet Week to honor the sailors and marines who serve our country. Seems this year is even more special as it celebrates the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812! But in all honesty, what always captures my attention is the water show compliments of FDNY!
Last year, without realizing there was such an annual event, I just happened to stumble across the warships as they made their way up the Hudson River towards the George Washington Bridge. (See post here.) This year I was able to witness the parade of tall ships which was just as exciting! Now that I’ve researched further, next year a cruise to witness the entire event up close and personal along side the ships will be on the must-do list!
So much to see and do, so little time!
