Independence Day


Pic courtesy of James, who wasn’t as drunk as he should have been

So around forty adults and an entirely unnecessary number of children under 5 climbed up to our roof deck one balmy summer’s night.  And this is what they saw…




Top two blurry pictures by me.  Bottom sharp pic by James.


Drunk in charge of a camera again

I yet again had far too many margaritas to be safe in charge of a camera and also forgot to take any pictures of the food or of the extremely cheesy red, white and blue decorations, or of the Stars and Stripes and Union Jack fluttering gently together in perfect harmony. 

The Minx rushed around all night waving a Stars and Stripes and being taught to say ‘down with the King’ by our friends.  There will be beheadings.

Seattle excelled itself once again.  God bless America.

    Looks like a splendid time indeed, Ms. Paola! So sorry that I couldn’t be in attendance 🙁 Blurry or not the setting and the sparks look spectacular! I know I always look a little better when blurred 😉

    All that was missing was someone doing a little early Madonna…
    I’ll make sure there’s Vaseline on the lens next year1
