Memorial Day - 2012


We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them. ~Francis A. Walker~



In the USA, today is the day we remember the fallen soldiers and also the kick off for summer fun.
Stay Safe and if you don't follow Lady Bug From Texas, don't miss her post Oma's Worries  it will give you all the safety tips for the coming summer fun.

I found these colorful Kayaks in Walmart Parking Lot last Saturday morning.
Price list in the back window of the car, said 27.00, 29.00 and 39.00 per hour.
Come on Down and enjoy our waterways and beaches.


Wait, I did not mean that, our roads are way to crowded.  LOL

I was wondering about that invitation, I know how crowded the beaches can be on a holiday weekend!
Great shots of the kayaks.

Colorful start to summer! But too late on urging me not to add to your traffic. I am determined to one day visit the Ringling Museum and other intriguing attractions you have captured so well with your cameras new and old! Happy and safe holiday!

What a colorful photo of those kayaks. It does pay to bring one's camera along, doesn't it? I hope you have a lovely Memorial Day.

A Quiet Corner said...

Holy moose-poops...are those kayaks? Are you going to do that, Sandra????...:)JP

Debra Dickinson said...

Great colors on the kayaks! And great advice from Oma. When I lived in Austin and would brag about something, I always used to get readers that would say, "Shhhhh, we want to keep it a secret." LOL.

Deb said...

Sandra you are so sweet to mention my post...those kayaks are so colorful...they rent them at the lake too....my daughter is going to look into the price...

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Important day of remembrance that gets overshadowed by all the start of summer celebrations. Enjoyed the colorful kayaks, Sandra.
