The Trnkas and 9/11

Today we had a great visit with Sue and Wally Trnka. They arrived in Cape May about 11 am having driven down from Philadelphia. They also have a rental condo just north of here in Wildwood, NJ so if anyone wants a nice place to relax at an ocean town, just let me know and I will hook you up with them.

They had a car so we spent part of the day driving around to stores to fill up our refrigerator, get my bike repaired( the one that fell into the ocean), and just drive around this part of New Jersey. Joy got to spend some quality time with Sue alone, no husbands hanging around.

We went to a 9/11 memorial service at sunset tonight. It was very impressive. Every night Cape May Point( a separate political subdivision from Cape May) has a flag lowering ceremony right before sunset. Today was an expanded version and quite moving. Lacey, the rescue dog pictured with Joy, pulled her partner and 22 other people out of the WTC towers right before they collapsed. She must have sensed something was going to happen.

We will be here in Cape May until Tuesday, perhaps Monday, as we wait for the right wind conditions for a 60 plus mile trip out the Delaware River up to the C&D Canal.


Big PS : Joy's phone is out. New phone arriving in 10 days. If you need to contact us, call my phone 603-748-4404
