Where are you for the 4th?

We are sitting on a mooring in Castine, Maine, waiting for cocktail time and fireworks at 9.

Pics of a couple of nearby boats:

The 4th in Camden

I was in Camden one year in the late 80s for the 4th. The 4th of July fireworks show was finally held on Aug. 13th.

Fog. Every. Single. Day.

Great cruising though. We stumbled around using (gasp!) Loran C and radar.

Looking fwd to going back!

This year at home in FL. We're prepping for our fall trip to the Chesapeake.

Mike

Annapolis Maryland, a very festive place any time and especially on 4th of July weekend.

If anyone else is in Annapolis this weekend, look us up at the Annapolis City Marina and we can get a drink together.

At home prepping to go down tomorrow to get the boat in Stuart. Two days of getting some training on a twin screw and then taking 3 days to bring her home.

Spent today tearing down an industrial chiller in preparation for a crane lift tomorrow at 7 am. Firing up the BBQ now and prepping fuses for our own neighborhood display.

Be safe all.

Headed through the locks (with about 300 other boats!) for Lake Union (Seattle) for the fireworks. Will be in the middle of about 3,000 other boats in the Lake for the show. Luckily, have a friend with a floating home we can tie up to.

Southwest Harbor, Maine. The town fireworks were on a barge 300 yds from Grace. Perfection!

We were on a friends boat last night for a great fireworks show at Boston Harbor. We were less than 100 yards from the fireworks barge with the fireworks going off directly overhead. Pretty awesome show.

I've been sitting around this afternoon watching Revolution on the History 2 channel. We are very fortunate people.

Moored in a quiet cove, one of only two boats in the mooring field. Saw no less than 8 fireworks displays last night before the mosquitoes drove us inside, as well as a unique sunset.

We were supposed to be in Key West on a friends boat watching the fireworks but we blew the outdrive 20 miles offshore from Goodland Fl. Had bouncy 2 hr wait for SeaTow and then a 2 1/2 hr tow into Goodland. When we finally got home yesterday..we had a glass of wine and went to bed...LOL
Thats just boating I guess.
