The photo below I took on January 19, 2017.  What does it possibly have to do with July 4, 2021?

Do you recall the questions at the end of this post from not quite a month ago?

I quote from the Moran FB page:  “Lady Liberty’s ‘Little Sister’ departed France on June 23rd, taking the same route that the original statue once took.  The nine-foot replica was carried onboard the French vessel CMA CGM Nerval, and arrived in Port Elizabeth, New Jersey, where she was met by CMA CGM’s North America President, Ed Aldridge, the French Ambassador, Philippe Etienne, and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. She will be displayed on Ellis Island for Independence Day, and then she will head down to Washington, DC for Bastille Day, which is on July 14th.”

So I’m guessing the “Little Sister’ will travel down to DC by truck, return here by truck, and then be loaded aboard another container ship.  I hope they announce which vessel carries this cargo.

The photo below from July 4, 2012 is especially bittersweet since Pegasus is no longer.   Here are my illuminations aka skyrockets posts, and no, I won’t be among the throngs around the East River tonight . . . . too many people.

Hip hip 245!!
