Memorial Day: pool, barbecue and history

Today is the start of the Memorial Day long weekend; here is how we passed it.

First, it was opening day for our roof-top pool. We arrived shortly after opening time of noon, and everyone was sun-bathing, so I think I was the first one into the water for the year. And Anna was the second.

It was also opening day for the back-yard barbecue season …

And since John Logan, the main person behind the creation of the Memorial Day holiday, lived nearby, I wandered over to visit him and and his home at 4 Logan Circle.
