Memorial Day 2023
We did not travel for this Memorial Day weekend and so we chose to do day trips nearby, visiting gardens. On Sunday, I had a thought. Why not go see the National Cemetery in the Presidio of San Francisco. It's one of the spots within the Presidio that we have not visited yet. And since it's the Memorial Day weekend, why not do it now? So we did. It's also to honor my departed father who was an Army vet, although I just found out that Memorial Day is actually in honor of those who died in service for the country. My father did not die in service, but I thought everyone that enlisted should be honored. According to my research, Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day, due to the fact that the graves are decorated with flowers, flags, wreaths, etc. This is where I got the information. Here are the photos we took on Sunday, a cold, windy day - typical San Francisco weather, methinks.
