Happy 4th of July

Our town's big flag is waving...

And we had our own little parade on the beach today, to celebrate our country's birthday. A brief history lesson about the stars and stripes, and we cleared up the confusion about the national bird (now we all know it's the eagle, not the seagull, though on a day at the beach, we might be surprised about that).

We enjoyed a treat from the local bakery, and then found some beautiful beach glass for our collection. All in all, a great way to start the day.

Happy birthday, America! And thank you so much to all the people who allow us to sustain the many simple freedoms we enjoy and take for granted--like a peaceful walk with family on a beach.
