Happy Birthday



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.

Click here for a poem I wrote about July 4th at the Islander.

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.

4th if July on Hills Bay watching the fireworks was the best. I have many fond memories of those nights. The Islander was the place to be, and so much fun in the summer. It's sad to look at it now.

Hm, I can't wait to hear the story of the impromptu boat ride.

When you have a chance, you might find these pix interesting. :)
