So, here are some pictures from what I did for the 4th of July celebrations.
In Vermont, they celebrate beginning on the night of the 3rd with a 30 minute firework show at the Burlington waterfront. The party kinds starts at 6pm with food stalls and mobile shops around. The crowd slowly builds. We picked a spot away from the main action; North Beach. There were lots of people in North Beach and it was good cos we didn't have to crane our necks or get the build-up of smoke blown towards us after 30 minuts of works.
|Multiple works in one big one :-)|
|Romantic but no one to hold hands and snuggle with. Well, more space for me on the sand blanket!! Lol.|
|The Front Line|
This was followed by the Williston Town Band and they played the national anthem under the American flag and everyone stood silent. My landlady says she usually puts her right hand over her heart; she's so sweet and funny.
|This was probably the funniest 'club' but yes, Vermonters do love their lawn chairs which they laze on in the evenings after dinner.|
|Pauquette Full of Poises were giving out free plants! I got one for my landlady.|
The parade lasted about 1.5 hours and we walked back to my landlady's relative's house and enjoyed a session of Wiffle Ball. It is like baseball I guess but the bat is made of plastic and the ball is hollow and also made of plastic. They tried to teach me to bat and my hit rate was between 0 and 25%. Lol.
After that, it was a long afternoon nap before I rode JC for 1.5-2 hours :-)
|I love JC|
Then the day ended. I hadn't quite got what I wanted until this morning in my inbox... And me was happy, I guess.
