By Foot and By Thumb: Day 4

October 23, 2017

We rose mid-morning and left quietly.

I had never before seen the Statue of Liberty, so we made a detour to Battery Park on the southern tip of Manhattan, before moving along to the Windy City.

I made sure to dip my toes into the Atlantic Ocean, before I bid the east farewell.

The drive was long.  It was ’round a quarter to midnight when we crossed the Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge.

The rain drove down in bullets. I was so thankful to be safe in a capsule of warm heat.

I slept well on the couch of my new friends apartment, that night.
