What are your plans for Memorial Day weekend?

"I'm open to suggestions, but hopefully I'll just hang out with some friends and have a barbeque. In the past, I've gone camping."

Elmo Duran, Mountain View

"I will be going to abalone camp. Two of the guys dive for abalone and the rest of us cook it. It takes about a four-hour drive to Sonora and this will be the third year my friends will be going."

Lita Crawford, Saratoga

"For Memorial Day weekend, I will be at work and work. I always work on Memorial Day weekend. When I was kid, I used to go swimming in the local swimming holes."

Andreas Bastian, Brooklyn

"Every single year for Memorial Day, I go down to see my mother. She's going to be 88 years old, so I hope to have a little birthday luncheon with her. Even though she wasn't a war vet, my father was, so we'll honor him as I drink a toast to both of them."

Sue Singh, Tahoe

"We both haven't been to Capitola, so we want to check it out. It's a little beach community that's a couple miles south of Santa Cruz. It's a nice area to relax and just sit on the beach."

Lupe Pena and Manuel Gudino, Mountain View
