While we were in Texas, we visited Dealey Plaza, the location of the assassination of President John F Kennedy on November 22, 1963.

Route of JFK motorcade

Here is a map of the motorcade’s route.

This is Dad and our friend, Wendy Appleby, at the top of the plaza.  The motorcade would have passed by us on its way to turn onto Elm Street, location of bullets fired.

This is Mom and Dad with the ‘grassy knoll’ in the background.


Mom and Dad went in the museum, the alleged site of the gunman on the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository .  Mom said looking at the plaza from above gave a whole new prospective than on ground level.  We sat by the fountains with Mark and Wendy.  No Dogs Allowed in the museum.

By the way, we look a long look at that picket fence too.
