Fireworks 2017

Since I was in town for 4th of July this year I made the long walk to the park to go watch the fireworks.

The park is more than a mile away, but I probably couldn’t have found parking anywhere close so it made sense to walk. I would spend just as much time away from home with more frustration. Plus, I really needed the exercise. I had walked only about 3,000 steps for the day.

I did not time it too well and ended up getting to the park about 20 minutes before I had planned. I should have waited for it to get a bit darker before I left.

I will not even share a picture of the finale. I tried to take a couple pictures but the amount of light just saturates the image and they are not even worth posting.

Maybe next year I need to remember the tripod 🙂

I hope everyone had a fun but safe 4th of July.
