Route 66 - part three

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.
