Before departing, I chance on the Memorial Day parade. Thousands are here and, before the start, a couple poses on the route for wedding photos. Canadians would never have the hutzpah.
I get a few snaps commencing with a resurrected Abraham Lincoln.
A high school cadet poses with the American eagle.
A Chinese-American war vet waits for the parade to begin. The one-of-a-kind panda is worth a click.
A kind lady hands me a flag. What to do? I'm not really a flag waver. I flourish it politely and, oh well, grandmother was American.
