The Soldiers & Sailors Monument on The Circle

Approximately 40 years ago, my grandparents took me to Indianapolis to visit the Indiana War Memorial, and we rode an elevator to the top of The Soldiers & Sailors Monument‘s observation deck.

Today, with just fifteen minutes to spare, Quintin and I traveled to the monument’s deck, and took in the sites of Indianapolis, one of my favorite cities since childhood. Since I am approximately the same age as my grandparents when they took me to the monument, I decided that we should descend the monument via the very long staircase as my grandparents and I did so long ago.

It was nice to retrace steps of a fond memory involving two of my favorite folks.

Before leaving the city, Quintin and I dined at Shapiro’s Deli, one of my favorite haunts when visiting the city.
