Anacortes Fourth

This is the park that we go to for special celebrations held in Anacortes. A very unique park with structures built with many smallish stones as you can see.

Here is the side of the stage.

The special war memorial.

A member of the Navy leading us in patriotic songs.

I hope you can click on this photo so you can see in the center the little twin boys in the stripped shirts with the flags and the little girl next to them. Well...Mr. B. and I were watching the girl running through the crowd proudly waving her flag and when she got over by the boys we could see them having a sword fight with, yes, ...the flags. I tried to catch it with my camera but when I got home and down loaded found the end result instead.....I sure hope you can enlarge to see what funny.

Part of the crowd, quite a nice turnout.

The beautiful stage.

A pastor from one of the many churches in Anacortes gives the Benediction.

Lemonade....Hummm, Mr. B. should be somewhere close.

Yep, here he is picking up a gallon jug of the yellow goodness and giving a generous, I might add, donation to a very good cause.

Here's my stop, The Boys Scouts have some homemade, White Chocolate and Macadamia Nut, cookies that have my name on them...Yummy.

We didn't stop here, but not to fear as we shop at the Kiwanis thrift store on a regular (twice a week at least) basis.

I wanted to share this sweet home across the street from the park all dressed up for the event.

Small town U.S.A.
Hope you all had a wonderful 4th.
There is a giveaway to tell you about. It is over at Annie Mason and she is giving away a cute hat. She is hoping to get some more people to sign on, please go and take a look.
Have a great Monday.
