Hi Beachy, cute table.. and I LOVE GREEN..
I love the Memorial. I have been there three times, the most recent(and where the pix I posted came from) was this past December.
The first time I was there was shortly after the dedication ceremony, It was hot & the fountain was loaded with children, adults & pets, cooling off & laughing & enjoying each other & the day. *the one pix I have on this thread of the vet in wheelchair is from that first visit, He had tears in his eyes recounting the war & was so thrilled to be threre,)
I could not help but sit on the edge of the pool & take it all in.. here were the symbols all around the circular display of the battles, people & events that let us here many years later live in the security & protection that they provided in that war.
It was as if they were looking over & approving.
I had my pup Oliver who also had a ball & like the other pets there cooled off in the pool.
The times of varing sun locations makes for interesting effects.
I have never been there at night yet.
I love the FDR memorial at night and am guessing that this memorial is also awesome with the spotlights & water sprays & falls around the display
Good afternoon, Dolly
They allowed people in the fountain? I wouldn't have guessed.
There are some new memorials that I have yet to see. Maybe, once the weather gets a little warmer, but before tourist season, I'll get Hubby to take me up so we can visit a few of them.
I agree with you. I bet that memorial is beautiful at night.
