Late Happy 4th of July  
Hope everyone had a great 4th. I did and had so much fun I needed a few days to recover from it. Chris and I went to Fred Howard Park to watch the fireworks on the beach. We had a great time there. A big storm came in, but it ALWAYS rains on the 4th of July in Florida. It also usually clears out before the shows begin. We parked in a decent location and had a pretty good view. Here is a video of some of the fun stuff that happened.


Things are going well and this was also a very nice anniversary.

I love your fireworks video. It was my late fireworks display because I went to bed too early. I miss having a professional display that I would walk to. In Avon (IN), they shot the fireworks off at a park that was a mile from my house, and there was a common area down the street we watched them from. One year, the golf course we lived on shot them from the clubhouse, and we sat in our front yard and watched them.

Thanks. I'm glad we did this. And I'm glad you got to enjoy it so much. I've been wanting to see a fireworks display for so long now but missed it each year. Not this time. I really wanted to go this year. When I used to live in that nice neighborhood their club house had a private show too that was nice because it was also walking distance.

Happy 4th July! You picked a nice spot. I can see you like people watching :) Special that that pair of dolphins showed up. A good omen. I can also hear how well you two get on. Very relaxed with each other. Happy anniversary! And thanks for posting a video of your fireworks!

Thank you. Not bad considering we didn't know where they were launching from. Next year we'll do it better. Get there early and stake out the right spot for hours ahead of time. Dolphins are very common especially in Tarpon Springs I almost always see one when I got to the ocean. I've kayaked with them and had one go under me which was very cool. Oh yeah we get along awesome. I should post the dash cam videos I've been making. Especially the first one. One reason I started posting those is not just to show accidents but to post some of the amazing conversations we have. We're very relaxed and just have lots of laughs together. Thank you. I was happy to share.

I was wondering if they launched them off a bridge?

They launched them off a beach on the mainland. I thought they'd launch them from the island we were on. The bridge at the end had parking spots so I think those are the best places to park and watch the show.

Oh, okay. Well, now you know. I saw in the video where you worked out the best place to park next year.

Happy belated Fourth of July! It usually rains here on Canada Day too :-)

Thanks. Late happy Canada Day to you too. Did it rain for you too? Luckily the weather cleared up.

Thanks! Kinda sorta. It was pouring rain the day before and after and kind of drizzly on the actual day.
