In honor of our country's birthday, which also happens to be my cousin Mary's birthday, I thought I'd post a few flag photos. These were taken on a leisurely boat ride on Queens Creek last Friday.
(The story behind that impromptu boat ride is another story entirely.)
The Fourth was a big deal around here back in the day. The place to be was anchored off Gwynn's Island for the fireworks put on by the Islander. Oh, what I wouldn't give for one more Fourth spent on a boat off that island watching fireworks.
However, given that my boat nearly caught on fire yesterday, which is yet another story for yet another day, I doubt I'd make the trip even if they were still doing the fireworks from there.

In other news, and in honor of the holiday, this blog is taking a much needed siesta.
Hope to be back and rarin' to go next week.
Have a great week.
