I was heading along the Greatest Generation Walk this morning when my eyes were surprised by bright color at the Battle of Leyte Gulf Memorial.
I discovered that four wreaths of remembrance had been recently placed on either side of the bust of Vice Admiral Clifton Sprague. Two were traditional holiday wreaths. It’s now less than two weeks before Christmas.
The image was so striking, and so thought-provoking, I thought I’d share a few photos.
The Battle of Leyte Gulf was a desperate naval battle in the Pacific Ocean theater during World War II. Few who fought there are still living.
Two of the wreaths say We Remember.
The other two offer hope.
I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!
Every year during the holiday season you can find this enormous bright red Christmas tree standing right next to the Seaport Village carousel. It’s built entirely of poinsettias! Lots of visitors enjoy posing for photographs beside it!
