Over-Nighten in the Burgh

In what appears to be developing into a summer tradition The Kid and I made a baseball pilgrimage to the Steel City, aka "The Burgh."   We scored a great rate for a downtown hotel room within a 3 block walk of the Clemente Bridge and overlooking Point State Park where the Monongahela and the Allegheny Rivers come together to form the Ohio.


We explored the park, the Fort Pitt museum and Block House.


Took in a ball game.


Our Buccos weren't on their game that night and we were sent scurrying back across the bridge in a failed attempt to out run a late evening thunder storm.


The next day there was more baseball.


(Let's go Cutch.}


Hey...where did they come from?  I think they are following me.


The great and wonderful JHay...the best story in Major League Baseball this season.

Some fantastic Greek food.


An extra inning victory and a last view of our hotel before heading home.

I can report that a great time was had by all.
