Independence Day

July 5, 2011

July 4, 2011 – it’s Independence Day in the U.S.  All day the flags have been flying, boats departing the harbour, cars parked in every spot throughout Waikiki, restaurants with ocean views jacking their prices up for dinner specials.  And why?  Well, just like every other country’s independence day the U.S. celebrates with massive fireworks displays.  Tonight is no different as Ala Moana park has been filling up with campers since yesterday in preparation for viewing the fireworks that start at 2000hrs.

So, what are we doing?  Heading up to the Hawaii Yacht Club for a BBQ pot luck and it just happens to be one of the best seats in town for viewing the fireworks.  So, here are a few pictures of the end result.  First time I’ve taken pictures of fireworks so mixed results:

    Gorgeous! I remember regular fireworks displays off Waikiki Beach the winter we spent at Ala Wai Marina.

    We spent Canada Day in Cowichan Bay — lunch and dinner with friends, no fireworks.

    Best wishes to you and Connie from Bill and me
