Big Bang

Digging things that go boom in SF. War Zone BBQ! on Twitpic
In between our wine tasting in Napa, we picked up some cute sparklers and bright lights. Several firework stands are fundraisers for non-profit groups, school sports programs and other good causes. It’s always a pleasure when I can help out and enjoy pretty lights.

Typically, I head down to Pier 39 in San Francisco. for the official July 4th show. I’m crammed in with hundreds of people and we watch the colorful lights disappear into the fog. Not great, but still memorable.

A totally different experience this year. After dark, people kicked-off an impromptu fireworks show. Wowa! It’s my first time watching people light up so many fireworks in the middle of the street.

Loud bangs and a rainbow of sparkles lighting up the sky.
Good times.
