Living in San Francisco, one doesn't usually get to actually see any fireworks on the 4th of July because San Francisco is usually extremely foggy during the summer. Insert annoying Mark Twain quote here - the coldest winter was the summer I spent in San Francisco - or so he supposedly said. But it is quite true. Summer in San Francisco isn't exactly warm. I have been known to wear a scarf and gloves during the summer. Yes. It is true.
Sunday night we drove close to the Great America amusement park, parked, and walked a few blocks closer to the park. We caught a great show of glitter falling from the sky. We didn't have to fight throngs of people or cars, and we were able to enjoy the pretty fireworks!
Monday we drove close to Shoreline Amphitheatre and joined a bunch of other people in the Costo parking lot and watched another gliter-tastic show. It was actually kind of cute... Rather than get out of the car and stand around in the parking lot, I suggested we pop up through the sun/moon roof and watch from there. We had the best "seats" in the house!
This little clip is from the KFOG Kaboom in San Francisco in May 2006. KFOG is a radio-station that puts on a concert & fireworks show in San Francisco usually in May. Generally in May it isn't foggy, so it is a good time to get your fireworks fix... Seriously - raining glitter! Love.
I hope you all had a little glitter in your 4th of July, or if you didn't, that you find a way to add a little sparkle and shine in your life each day!
Sparkles make everything better!
