New Marina

Our new marina is very different than our former Miami home. Unlike our last marina, which was located in a residential area of Miami, our new marina is situated within a state park, which is an ideal setting for Helina.

A massive boardwalk surrounds the entire property with amazing views of NYC and the Statue of Liberty:

Within the park itself is a huge playground, which boasts dozens of Helina's favorite apparatus--the slide:

Slides Galore!

We visit it often.

In addition to all of the outdoorsy stuff you'd expect to find in a park, the park we live in also has a (creepy) train museum, the Liberty Science Center, two restaurants, and access to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.

Our location in New Jersey is much quieter than our Miami home, which is odd since the city surrounding us is both closer in proximity and about 100x more massive in size. It makes no sense whatsoever, but I have stopped questioning it for now. I'm not a huge fan of the sounds of silence (i.e. annoying crickets), but every now and then, the wail of a siren drifts across the canal (we're also within walking distance to a hospital), which keeps me happy(ish).
