July 4th in the SLO Bay
no, I wasn't doing the Pismo thing again this year. yikes
so I snuck onto a smaller sand stretch behind one of Shell Beach's many Hotels where I eventually heard these guys over my headphones. So I turned around and took their picture. :)
and then driving back home a couple minutes before 10 ALL freeway traffic slowed down to watch as the Pismo fire department lit off the last round of fireworks over the pier. The best part was that from where I was it looked like they blew the road up into a giant fireball. Surreal.
sometimes this place amazes me. (aaaand sometimes not so much)
and before I forget
