Shadow Shot Sunday ~ more from Boston

This is the Massachusetts Beirut Memorial in Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park in Boston.

It was created in memory of the nine Marines from Massachusetts who died in the terrorist attack on the U.S. Marine Barracks in Lebanon on Oct. 23, 1983.

It says "Blessed Are The Peacekeepers" and the fallen Marines' names are inscribed.

One can almost read the sign!

Visit our awesome Aussie hostess, Tracy, at Hey Harriet to see lots more shadowy photos from around the world.

Lovely and moving shadows from Boston! Hope somebody trims the trees back so the sign in the last photo can be seen!

No, I haven't been to the United States. I really hope to visit one day. It's on the top of my wish list of places to go!

Yum Cha is what we call Dim Sum over here in Australia (in Brisbane we do anyway...not sure about other states of Oz).

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend Patti!
