Eureka Fire Company, Tarentum, PA

A short notice road trip to Pittsburgh, PA brought us to the Steel City
for a couple days. The opportunity first brought us to a community called
Tarentum about 20 miles up river from Pittsburgh on the Allegheny where
we found a fire boat and a few fire stations.

We then went into Pittsburgh and found their new fireboat as well.
The main purpose was to go to a couple baseball games - Miami Marlins
in town to play the Pirates at beautiful PNC Park.

Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio and the bridges.

and a few fire boats.
