The Fourth of July just wouldn't be complete without some fresh picked Pacific Northwest strawberries. Mmmm...
Or watching the ships headed for sea at sunset while enjoying an adult beverage.
Eventually we head for the beach with our goodies and set up a beach fire (a very safe distance from the goodies).
It's impossible to wait until dark to begin shooting off the fireworks so some folks start with the safe and sane stuff.
Then it's on to the big stuff.
