We went first to the Swissair Flight 111 memorial site. The terrain was remarkable — huge stones and boulders and lots of tundra-like plants — all right beside the ocean. Two huge stones are upended and engraved with the memorial message as well as three cut-outs that triangulate on the crash site. The place is austere, befitting the gravity of the memorial and it is beautiful at the same time. 229 people died in that crash and apparently folks from Bayswater and Peggy ’ s Cover worked in the recovery effort along with NTSB and other government workers.
