July 4th Photos
Because temperatures at parade time were into the 80s, I decided to not wear the bear coat in the parade. So here are some photos I took of the parade.
I did not take a lot of firework photos this year. Last year I was so busy documenting the fireworks, I forgot to enjoy them. So only a few photos are included below. The other reason I stopped taking photos is that I got a little freaked out by a firework that was truly in my face. A large shell exploded prematurely on the beach. We were seated around 100 yards from where they were setting them off. I immediately said "that was not supposed to happen." In a second or two sparks from the firework hit me. I brushed them off and for some unknown reason, I did not get burned. However, it did set the grass on fire in front of us.
