Statue of Liberty

Today was nice and sunny and hot, and we had a Statue of Liberty Tour booked first thing, which was just as well, as we woke up very early! The boat trip over was very pleasant with a bit of info on the harbour, but the security screening was a bit over the top. Once on Liberty Island we headed straight for the Statue of Liberty to go inside and upto the pedestal to look up her dress! The lift was broken so we had to walk up the 275 steps! That is the highest you can go since 9/11, and once again there was airport like security screening! The views were spectacular and the statue quite something to behold.

Which is the real statue?
