Got on the road about 1000. Headed right for Bayonne, NJ. Stopped for lunch at the outlet store place. Bayonne was amazing...you really need to know where you're going to find that memorial. Great views.
Got to Manhattan just fine. Took the Holland Tunnel. Lots of GPS bounce, but I knew where i was going. Great parking. Lots of people in the visitors center. Got inside and took the picture, then got back to the bike.
Wanted to go uptown. Nice ride...lots of jaywalkers. Traffic wasn't too bad. Lots of double-parking. Central Park South was a mess. Road into Central Park was closed because of the upcoming marathon. Decided to go to Queens. Saw a GS. Road to Flushing Meadows was interesting. Flushing Meadows has faded. Headed south to Far Rockaway, the to Coney Island. Went north so I could get some pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline. Saw the big house at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and Steiner's Studio. Brooklyn Bridge going into Manhaytan was closed. Where does Flatbush Avenue go? Saw a guy who'd been hit, lying in the street with a bunch of guys helping him. Ambulance hadn't gotten there yet. Before that, saw two vehicles driving recklessly.
Rode out over Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Stopped to snag a geocache in Richmond County, the headed into NJ. Got a couple of geocaches there. National Park was closed for the day, so i continued south. Stayed at a La Quinta.

Great sleep. So-so breakfast. Got on the road, heading south. Had a couple of virtual caches to get, and two stops on the 2013 Tour of Honor. Knew that the last ferry to Lewes sails at 1800, so headed for the ferry terminal. Got there with plenty of margin. Got dinner, took a bunch of pictures, and enjoyed the ride.
