Last year, we had the best of intentions of walking down to the waterfront (about a mile) to watch the fireworks. We had some people over, grilled out. Drank some sparkling water.
Then we got lazy. Climbing up on the roof (from which we have a glorious panorama view of the city) seemed treacherous. So we went out in the street and hopped up and down to see what we could see. This was what we could see.
Happy Independence Day!
