Happy Fourth of July!

Just checking in to wish you a Hap-happy Fourth.  Amber and her family are up for the week.  We had some preview fireworks last night courtesy of  Bay Harbor.  I live on a golf course that overlooks Little Traverse Bay and Bay Harbor.

The pictures loaded out of order and I'm too lazy to fix it.  This is the hot air balloon that my friend Lesley owns.  She has a company called Walloon Balloon Adventure.  One of the homeowners on the golf course had a party and hired her to give balloon rides before the fireworks began.

Here is a shot of the fireworks from our vantage point.  They let them off from a barge on the bay.  The bay is full of boats watching the festivities.  They honk their horns in appreciation.

Here is a shot of our spot during the daylight.

 The Petoskey Steel Drum Band played down on the waterfront in Bay Harbor before the fireworks started.  We could here them as we watched the sun set.

I  tell you what, it's evenings like this that make the endless winters worth it!!!
