A little peek at the Big Darby Creek at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park:
My city is well-known for their impressive Fourth of July fireworks display. The festivities are always held ahead of the actual holiday. This year, they were on Friday, 1 July. The Chef and I live right around the corner from the riverfront, where the fireworks are launched. We watched the display from our deck. Although we missed the lower ones due to a tall building being in the way, we saw a good 75% of the show without having to mingle with the throngs. That’s a win. Here are a few pics that I took with my camera phone. They’re not the best, but I think they can qualify as being *mildly* artistic.
It was a touch too warm this morning for a long walk, so we only put in 2 1/2 miles. Such a gorgeous day, though.
Happy turning of the seasons to you (and, yes, I realize that it isn’t summer everywhere around the globe):
