Perfect weather here in eastern NC. Didn't go far at all avoiding all the boat traffic. Took the Whaler over to Carrot Island for some quality beach time. Jammed on Saturday, mellow on Monday. Lot of military in these parts, so lots of remembrance all weekend.

Watched "The Longest Day for the first time in a long time too. Ann's dad was in the 101st, my dad was fixing shot planes in England. You also see more Confederate flags flying on Memorial Day, the one time I can reconcile with that; all it takes is a visit to Gettysburg to understand why.

I agree Larry wins. Best time of year be go over in the islands.

Yes, for years on Memorial Day three of my former squadron mates and I have either gotten together in person or by phone. Most years we have all somehow been able to get in touch. Several in our squadron did not make it back, but we keep their memories alive.

No Memorial Day on the boat. It's in the "shop" for annual maintenance and repair.
