This year they separated the flags by six feet!

 

Usually they have 1000s more but this year it was especially poignant due to the virus.

I miss Memorial Day weekend in Boston.  I lived there for many years and this was the summer kickoff down at  the Cape.  My husband used to go and put the flags in the cemeteries.

Re: Memorial Day in Boston 2020

Great pictures of one of my favorite places!   The separating of the flags is very touching and reminds us of not only this day and who it honors but of the present crisis.

 

While I am and have been a Yankee fan, I loved the picture of the flag draped over the Green Monster at Fenway!  I was lucky to attend a Yankee/Red Sox game at Fenway many years ago.  I loved the experience, Fenway is a great place!

 

Thanks for the pictures and stay safe!  I look forward to the day I can visit Boston again!
