The Jefferson Memorial Gateway Arch
.
I had so many different thoughts for this entry. 44 years after being born in St Louis - I finally got to return in 2000.

The city holds so many memories of my summers growing up in Houston Texas - coming to St Louis for 2 weeks every summer to stay with family and tour the sights.
As many things as I miss about Houston - this IS my Hometown!!


It's Friday - so come and have some fun!!!!

No losers or winners, just fun for all:

marijke - you can't see them in this shot but at the top (630' - 192m) is a large viewing platform with windows on both sides - unbelievable view, scary the 1st time but soooooo worth the trip

here are a couple of shots from up there:

A wonderful entry Bill.
As you know like you I no longer live in the town of my birth...
I consider Spain as my home now, though I suppose I'll always have a special place in my heart for the town that holds so many memories and that made me what I am today.

Have a great weekend dear friend.
