~ Around town~ Memorial Day

We started out heading west to a huge flea market but the sky in that direction kept getting darker and darker, probably rain, so we turned around and changed plans.

Here’s a shot of Chocolate Ave in Hershey PA. I travel this road everyday. Later we took my mostly sweet MIL on a drive to the National Cemetary at Fort Indiantown Gap. It was so moving to see hundreds of flags blowing in the breeze.


Thousands of motorcyclists came to honor veterans.
A beautiful war memorial.


You can’t tell from the pix but it was very crowded, so many people paying tribute to their loved ones.And lastly here is my dh and his 90 year old mom, enjoying some ice cream after a drive.

    Debra, What lovely photos you have on your blog this Memorial Day week-end. I so enjoyed them all. Thanks for sharing them. Glad you stopping by my bolg. How sweet of you to add the pink ribbon “For Amy” to yours. Would you be willing to give me your birthday? I’d like to add it next to your link on my blog. Only if you do not mind. Hope you have a great Memorial Day week end :-} ~Mary~
