After crossing the NC/SC border, we decided to eat lunch at a visitor center right off the highway.
As we drove past the Car parking lot, we drove past two police cars, a Ranger pickup, and a semi truck with an open flat trailer, followed by two more police cars. As we passed the procession, I read the sign on the truck. “Steel from the World Trade Center,” the sign said.
Boyink quickly parked the truck in the semi parking lot and jumped out of the truck to take a few pictures of the steel. I followed the rest of the family, a bit apprehensive, just in case they didn’t want us that close. Silly me. We walked up to the truck, and saw other people taking pictures.
One of the people driving the semi said, “You can touch it if you want.”
