Nila and I visited the Iwo Jima memorial in Harlingen. We saw an excellent film of the history of the war and walked through the museum.
This is the original model of the Iwo Jima Memorial that is in Arlington Cemetery in Washington DC. This is the clay sculpture that the bronze statue in Arlington Cemetery is made from. The detail is incredible.
As I took these pictures, the sun was just ready to peek over the top of the statue. It was a powerful moment!
After lunch at The Lost Galleon, Nila, her dad and I drove to South Padre Island. Nila could hardly contain herself after arriving at the very end of the island. She RAN through the sand to get her feet into the Gulf of Mexico.
