Yesterday was really the best Independence Day we’ve had in quite some time. Last year was great in CT, but this year was just us, friends, some beer and fireworks via boat – by far a show that compares even with our days watching fireworks on the roof of Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill – those were the days.
(Fun fact: hubs was originally going to propose to me with the fireworks on top of Longworth on July 4th 2008, but the ring burned a hole in his pocket so he proposed on 6/13/2008 in Georgetown instead)
We started the day being a bit lazy then went for a short 20 minute jaunt in the stifling heat. Horrible.
Sarah Jane had a pseudo-house warming party. Was supposed to be in Bethesda but got moved back to Annapolis after she and her beau lost power. Either way, it was lovely and festive!
Everything was delicious, I may have indulged in more than one cupcake. But they were worth it. And Adam and I split the second one. I couldn’t not.
Later we headed over to Eastport for a quick dinner at Davis’ Pub. Fun Fact: In Fall 2011, this divey joint in Eastport had Guy Fieri of the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-in’s and Dives stop by. It’s a favorite of ours, I can’t believe I didn’t realize that they were on that show (another favorite of ours) til last night when I saw the “Guy was here” logo spray painted on the wall. Can’t wait to see it air!
We headed over to Eastport Yacht Center to meet up with my friend Jason who also invited the lovely Sarah and her beau Mike out for some fireworks action.
Us on the boat heading over to Annapolis Harbor.
Sarah & Mike.
The fireworks show was by far among the best I’ve ever seen.
Fireworks, freedom and beer. Yay America!
How did you celebrate Independence Day?
