Happy Fourth of July!

Here is a photo from the deck of some good friends. They have an annual Fourth of July party and we have thoroughly enjoyed it the past couple of years. Our new house is in the midst of Fourth of July central. Today we saw the parade of 30+ Tall Ships come into the bay for a big Tall Ships festival weekend. The fireworks for our city are set off of a barge just down the hill from our house. All of our neighbors have festooned their homes and porches with flags, bunting, and general red, white and blue. We did as well and it is so much fun!


We will attend the annual neighborhood parade tomorrow at 9am and leave for a wedding in the Columbia Gorge area of Oregon tomorrow midday. We'll be away for several days but are sure to have a lot of great photos to share when we return.
