Fireworks and then some

I thought I would leave you with some fireworks for the weekend!

The country club, across the road from us (the one that we don't belong to ... oh, that's right ... we don't belong to ANY country club!), has a big hu-ha every July 4th for their members.  They put signs up in front of all our properties  ~no parking~  because a gazillion members show up and park miles away for the big shindig.  Everyone's all dressed to the "t" cause it's a "private" club ... PRIVATE .. like in you need a zillionbillion dollars to belong.

But we didn't need a zillionbillion dollars last night to enjoy their celebration.  We simply walked across the street and enjoyed a pretty impressive show. 



        Of course, I think the most impressive show is always a 
       sunset



enjoy
relax
nap
snack
and breathe in the joy
of life
this weekend


 So says Theo Thumper!

later, my friends

I understand & the fireworks shots are awesome! A sunset sure is, too, though! =)
I've tried to shoot fireworks, but never had much luck... maybe I'll try again this weekend

We heard the fireworks from across da river in Joisey last nite but were too pooped to go up to the roof to see what we could see ... ToonMan had a cardio appt which resulted in another tweak of the BP meds AND we walked home an almost 2 mile walk which he aced as he did the EKG ... life is good ... and I love your fireworks and sunset ... say hi to Thumper for me!

I was really blown away by the fireworks collage until I scrolled down and saw the sunset photo. Gorgeous! Isn't it funny how you saw the same exact show for free that the "privileged" paid a gazillion dollars to see? Love that! :)

Rachel said...

Those are just beautiful photos! Glad you got to enjoy the free show!

Nice to know that their gazillion dollars work for you. ;) You took some very impressive fireworks shots and yet nothing beats that incredible sunset. Just lovely.
