Been A While

I can't remember the last time I was able to watch Independence Day fireworks. It's been at least five years. If it wasn't for rain or colds, it was because I had to get up early the next morning for work. This year, there is no work tomorrow. We got to watch fireworks!

We wanted to kayak, but things happened during the course of the day that made that a no go, including lovely thunderstorms that made a lot of people think fireworks were cancelled.

In the evening, mom, dad, and I met Fox for dinner (poor Fae wasn't feeling well). Then Fox's AssMan joined us and we took a nice long walk to several public beaches in Eastport before settling on one that was less crowded and we thought would offer a good view. For reasons of crowd, we decided not to go into Annapolis.

We picked a good beach, and it didn't get really crowded until the fireworks actually started. After the storms passed through, the air was quite still.

We know a little now for next year, when we're really going to try to kayak and view from our boats. Maybe I won't get eaten alive by sandflies next year.
