the red white and blue

This 4th of July we celebrated on the roof of the Museum of Science. As members, we were able to buy tickets and sit on the parking garage roof for a beautiful view of the fireworks. The staff did a great job (largely volunteers) of making sure things ran smoothly.
The city sparkled as the sun set. Everyone just hung out and listened to music. Of course, as long as I have my decorating magazines I can while away almost any amount of time ; )
This sunset before the fireworks~! What a treat. Usually we are all running about and I, for one, rarely look up. So it was quite a lovely thing to have nothing to do but sit and watch a sunset so beautiful it could have been somewhere over Arizona.
And then the fireworks over Boston Harbor did not disappoint. They are a little later than I would wish because the Boston Pops Esplanade Concert has gone national and is now broadcast until 11 pm. Back in the "old" days the fireworks went off at 9ish so the little ones could still be home at a decent time. By the time they actually went off at 10:30 there were lots of tots already asleep.

  1. Ah, thank you for clearing that up for me! We watched it from Florida - and thought "it must be tape delayed - they would never shoot live this late!" -- but we did get to watch Macy's New York Fireworks from 9-10, then Boston from 10-11 - in the comfort of our air-conditioned living room!

  2. ha ha...well next year it will also be from the comfort of my air-conditioned living room! MLS
