    Capitol Park

    Just south of the main shopping area you will find Capitol Park, obviously right next to the State Capitol building. A beautiful place to suddenly find yourself in, and seeminly miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets.

    I found another surprise here too...

    Peaceful now, but not forgotten

    I found myself being drawn to this monument, without knowing what it was. It is a monument to those citizens who gave their lives in the Vietnam War, and, personally, I have never seen any other monument like it. I found it rather difficult to walk away from it, and took several photos of the lifelike figures.

    The California Vietnam...

    The California Vietnam Veterans Memorial behind the State Capitol is made of 22 shiny black granite panels, engraved with the 5,822 names of California's dead and missing. Bronze figures depict daily life during the war. It's in a beautiful, peaceful park and the setting is a perfect place to sit down, reflect on this war and remember those who died there.

    The War Memorial

    There are several bronze figures depicting servicemen in Vietnam, some like this one, just sitting, others, obviously wounded, being cared for. All very moving.
