Scenes from Queens Creek
All of these were taken at various points in time from the comfort of my back yard.
Today might be my favorite day of 2012 thus far, because as of this evening I will be on vacation/off work until Monday, July 16th! I know! Well over a week.
We're contemplating making the trek to Yorktown tomorrow evening to see the fireworks, since the Mathews fireworks won't happen until this weekend.
I gave up trying to understand why anyone would have 4th of July fireworks on any day other than July 4th, but I am sure there are good reasons. Just not very obvious ones.
Anyway, this time of year always reminds me of the very best place in the world to watch fireworks, which was perched inside a boat near the mouth of the very creek in today's photos: Queens Creek. Back in the 1970s and '80s, the Islander fireworks were legendary. I really miss those days.
But I'm not complaining. Because I don't have to go back to work until July 16th!
Are you doing anything for July 4th?
