2017 East Coast Magical Mystery Tour Day 2

A long car ride, packing for multiple trips within a trip (DC, Pittsburg for school conference and exploring, NYC, DE (beach)) and this is what you get:

On the trip to Pittsburg from DC, we decided to stop by and see the United Flight 93 National Memorial in PA.  It was amazingly well done, and very much worth the time.

I really had no idea how emotional I’d get at the memorial.  It started at the overlook, but inside the Visitor’s center as I was reading the minute by minute account of the day, it got worse.  I lost it when the TV clips they were playing replayed the Today Show footage of the 2nd flight hitting the Trade Center — I remember that exact clip as I was watching it live as it happened, and that brought the memories flooding back.  For those of you that don’t know, Danny Lewin, the co-founder of Akamai, was on American flight 11, so 9-11 has always been a very emotional memory for all of us that knew him and were working there that day, and I still get so sad when re-living it.  😦

Once we got to Pittsburg, I got out for a quick run along the river(s):

And then we went to Burgatory for dinner, and I got this fortune:  :-/IMG_1131

This looks like a great place for a conference and to explore post conference for a couple of days…IMG_1132
