Not Just Another Twenty-Four Hours...

The Missus and I made landfall in Lower Manhattan at or about 3:00 pm on Saturday afternoon.  By the time we had crossed the river back over to the Jersey side at or about 3:00 pm on Sunday afternoon, we had had ourselves one hell of a time in the big City.  Among the things we did - of which you shall see no photographic evidence (while many others did, it simply struck me as a place the solemnity of which overrode the desire to take pictures) was visit the National September 11 Museum.  It was, for me, as heart-wrenching, as poignant, as sad and as starkly beautiful as I had anticipated it would be.  

Here's a quick glimpse at how we spent our 2014 Tunnel to Towers Weekend in New York City.  Enjoy.  We most assuredly did...
