The National Museum of the Pacific War

The National Museum of the Pacific War was the first thing on our agenda this morning, and it was well worth the visit.
There are multiple walls with inscriptions of those men and women lost in the war outside of the museum.There is also a peace garden provided by Japan.
A very calm and relaxing place...
I knew a lot about the second world war in Europe, but this museum clarified the Pacific War for me. It is certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.
After a lunch (a great Reuben sandwich) at the Altdorf restaurant, we headed back to the campground to give the dogs some excercise. Around three, Diana and I headed out for Wildseed Farms which is one of the nation's largest working wildflower farms. We walked the trails along side the fields where the wild flowers are grown for seed harvesting.

The fields of Bluebonnets and Poppies are just coming into full bloom.

We then took a drive down the Main street in Fredricksburg a little further west than we did last night. We got out of the vehicle and walked around the market place park that is located in the middle of town. It is a great park with walking trails and areas dedicated to various periods in the history of Fredricksburg.

What a nice restful place in the middle of this city.

This "tree" depicted the history of Fredricksburg.

When we got back to our rigs, I took a few pictures of some of Emma's entertainment that is located about 25 feet outside our front windows!

I think we may go to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area tomorrow after an early visit to one of the bakeries in town.

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy
