My Country `tis of Thee...

Adventurer A
dsc00320.JPGdsc00322.JPGI had the opportunity on my Tampa (TPA) to Baltimore-Washington (BWI) flight the other day to play host to 17 students and their headmaster, Mr. Brian Siegel, from the Pinellas County Jewish Day School.  They were on their way to visit our Nation's capital.  It sounded like they had a pretty full agenda for the four days that they were going to be visiting.   On Monday, they were going to be visiting the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial as well as the Lincoln Memorial.  They were then going to be taking a evening cruise down the Potomac River. dsc00321.JPGdsc00325.JPGTuesday, they were going to visit their Congressman, the Honorable Bill Young of Florida.  After some time with him, they were off to the Ford Theater, the Aerospace Museum, the Holocaust Museum, and then a visit to the Israeli Embassy. Wednesday held even more fun.  A visit to the Supreme Court and then off to Mount Vernon.  Thursday they were off to the Spy Museum and then the I Street Synagogue.  And then, a very tired bunch of eighth graders were going to be returning on a BWI - TPA flight.  As you can tell, they were in for a fun-filled, very busy week in our Nation's capital.
