The 4th - Dealiest Catch Style

Okay - so July 3rd was lovely, and July 4th started out just fine!
We dropped anchor and Dad put on his "shorty" wetsuit to do a little barnicle scraping around our boat - The Kanaloa.
Mom and I hung out and snapped some sail boats with the new camera!
We were enjoying the view - this is Children's Island, a small island just out side Salem Harbor used by the local Y as a day camp.
Then as the afternoon wore on the rain started falling and didn't stop!! The harbormaster told everyone over the radio that the fireworks were cancelled. As you can see Dad is wearing his Grundens, a staple for all lobstermen and crab boat crews. The sky poored heavy rain on us and we felt like we were on an episode of our favorite TV show - "Deadliest Catch"!!

Well, we raced to the car and got to hear the Boston Pops 4th Celebration on the radio. (Click on the link and you can see the festivities) Mom sang the whole way home and we got back just in time to see the fire works on TV. Boston skies may have cleared but the North Shore just above Boston was very wet. It may have been rainy - but we were all together and had a very happy 4th of July.

I'm thinking since it's the USA's birthday and they had fireworks, maybe I could get Mom and Dad to have fireworks for my birthday - makes sense right!!

I wish I had a boat. Then I could go out into the water without swimming!

Hi, Dory.
So sorry about the rain! Always appears when we don't want it!
Seems like you would be the happiest girl in the world if you have fireworks for your birthday!
I hope you get them!
Have a nice day

That's too bad you didn't get to see fireworks! Rats! But that boat sure looks like fun. The biggest boat I've ever been in is a canoe, BOL!!!

Glad to meet ya!

Wow--so brave! You could maybe get an episode of "I Shouldn't Be Alive" out of that.

I could do without fireworks on my burpday but if that's what you want, you should definitely get 'em. And a big cake. Who doesn't want a big cake?
