Pohick Bay Regional Park, Lortan, VA for Sat., Sun. and Monday nights.  Convenient to DC., quiet and friendly.  Good base to operate from for weekend. 
Stopped to walk over Potomac.  Washington supposedly threw a silver dollar across this river.  I only had a half dollar and as you may have guessed, only made it to mid stream. . . . . .
Funny looking five sided building.
Nearing destination.
Been a long time.  Did not expect to feel much, but by the time I left I was crying again.  Even fifty years down the time line the images are clear and in reflection seem more intense,
This time in addition to Norman (young Corporal I escorted home to his family in New Bedford, MA in 1967) I was looking for my adopted little sister Brenda's brother Ronald.
With help from my daughter Susan on her computer in Florida I did.  It amazes me how we connect with someone we never met through a common shared experience as a Band of Brothers in combat.

Nearly 0800 hrs and time to find todays adventure.
