Today is Flag Day in the United States of America and we treasure what the flag stands for at our house.
The Pledge of Allegiance
Officially adopted on Flag Day, June 14, 1924 (“Under God” Amendmant made by Congress in 1954)
I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands;
one nation under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all.
Off with your hat, as the flag goes by!
And let the heart have its say;
you’re man enough for a tear in your eye
that you will not wipe away.
~Henry Cuyler Bunner
I believe our flag is more than just cloth and ink. It is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, and freedom. It is the history of our nation, and it’s marked by the blood of those who died defending it. ~ John Thune
Whatcom Falls Park
Mid May Dear and I had a road trip north to Bellingham via Chuckanut Drive to check out Whatcom Falls and the historic stone bridge.
President Roosevelt’s New Deal Works Progress Administration paid workers to move the Chuckanut sandstone arches from a downtown burned-out building to the park. In 1939 the sandstone was used to construct the landmark stone bridge.
Too bad about the fallen tree that had lodged itself into the falls. I’m wondering if it has dislodged and flowed downstream by now.
In the distance above the main waterfall was this smaller waterfall with some pretty lighting.
The parking lot with access to the stone bridge and the falls was a very short distance from this spot.
I’m linking up with ABC Wednesday
started by Mrs. Nesbitt and administered by Roger and a team of ABC’ers.
W is for Whatcom Falls Park and for Waterfalls.
