Veterans Day Ceremony – Murphys, California

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I am scheduled to depart November 28th. While here, I’ll do cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to both vehicles.

 

 

Today’s Subject…Veterans Day Ceremony – Murphys, California…

 

 

Yesterday Mary and I attended a local Veterans Day Ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park. The memorial park is new (to me)…I didn’t know it was even here, having been built in recent years.

We arrived just about the time the ceremony was beginning. Ended up in a location looking out at the general audience and unfortunately for photo taking…right into the sunny south. Difficult conditions at best…

 

Here are some of the photos that I took…

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
