notes from a small island

North America

I've not travelled to North America - and, this time, neither has my camera toting daughter. I did think of posting a picture of a burger in a bun(!) - but thought this might be more interesting.

Star of India

Fairly self-explanatory I think - the famous Star of India which is now San Diego harbour was built in the small town on the Isle-of-Man where I grew up. Plaque erected by the North American Manx Association.

And North America also makes me think of this -

Honouring American pilots of the RAF

Here is a close up

Honour - close up

There are memorials to other American airmen dotted around our island - they sadly seemed prone to flying into us during WW2 - but this is the one I know best.

Comments

It always touches me to see countries acknowledge the children of other countries.
Me too - so many memorials through the world to show that the children of other nations are not forgotten.
