Avon Lake fireworks

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

This July 4th is in the USA – at Avon Lake, a suburb of Cleveland. 

We are visiting with my wife’s family.  All the siblings were together for a birthday on July 1st and now four couples and mom remain in Avon Lake.

So tonight we ventured off to the Lake (Erie).   There a band played and the fireworks exploded.  Much to our delight and to the town’s morale.  We figure more than a few thousand showed up on the shore’s edge to watch, listen and generally express delight.

Now, that is fun!  And tonight we will sleep well – I’ve gotten more exercise than expected – our car was a good mile (note the Americanism!) from the fireworks.

Good night, all!
