Gateway Clipper






On Wednesday, I went in to work early. I know, crazy, huh?!? But it was for an outing. Four of us RSAs took seven ladies and headed down to Pittsburgh. Our destination was the Gateway Clipper. What an interesting day it was. The Gateway Clipper is a fleet of paddle boats that travel on the three rivers in Pittsburgh. It's actually a great way to see some of the city. We got to see PNC Park (home of the Pirates), Heinz Field (home of the Steelers), the science center, headquarters for Del Monte foods and Starkist, among many other sites. We learned that Pittsburgh is the city with the most bridges of anywhere in the world. It even surpasses Venice, Italy! (I was rather impressed with that bit of trivia.)
