Beachy Memorial Day Celebration
Established in 1868, Memorial Day (originally known as Decoration Day) honors those who have died in military service for the United States. It’s a day of reflection and remembrance for their ultimate sacrifice. When I was little, my mom and dad would buy red poppies for us to wear, but I haven’t seen them in a long time. It’s also a three-day holiday and lots of tourists are here, but it’s still early and cloudy, so it’s not too crowded on the roads or the beach.
