I know, I know. Once again this is just a little late. But it is the last post before I am all caught up.
My brother Jim, and his wife Annie, live in Austin, Texas. We convinced them to temporarily abandon the wonderful summer weather in Texas and come visit the rainy northwest for the Fourth of July weekend. The plan was to take them to Blake Island on the second, and then on to Poulsbo for the Third of July festivities. And that is just what we did.
I know, I know. This is not a particularly timely post. The Fourth of July was along time ago. Things just seem to get in the way of other things. But it’s time to get this posted so we can move on to more new and exciting posts.
Liberty Bay was chock full of boats for the fireworks on the third. You can see from this photo there are many returns and this does not show the entire bay.
We decided to try something new this year for the Fourth of July. We decided to watch the fireworks on Lake Union. We usually avoid crowds and especially crowds of boats. But for some unknown reason, we threw caution to the wind this year. The challenge for us is that we can’t see the north half of the lake from our slip so we had to venture out into the fray and anchor in the melee of boats. This year we were feeling brave.
The fireworks are fantastic, but the “pre show” on the lake is equally entertaining.
