Jimi Hendrix Memorial

Today we visited a place that Austin says will be one of his favorite places of all.  We were able to visit the resting place of the guitar great, Jimi Hendrix.  It was very touching to pay our respects to this man that Austin knows so much about.   So sad to listen to Austin recall his early death, and the events surrounding it.  The memorial is beautifully done and has some very personal touches.  I highly recommend it to anyone in this area.  It was a great day for all of us.

What a memorable stop. I always loved Jimi Hendrix's music and truly repected his father. I probably need to make a trip to Renton some day to see that.
