It is time for the Old Fashioned 4th of July here in Forks. The merchants are taking part in a window decorating contest. There will an Arts and Crafts Fair, Parade, Salmon BBQ, vendors in the park and a Demolition Derby. This year the fireworks display will be on Saturday, July 5. There is an emergency shortage of pyrotechnics operators, so our show will be delayed for a day. We will enjoy them, regardless and there seem to be plenty of personal fireworks in the neighborhood to keep us entertained.
We have had some beautiful summer days this week. Even had to put the window air conditioners in to cool us off at nights. Yesterday we took advantage of the lovely weather and went up to Hurricane Ridge. We took one of the daily ranger led walks, and learned all about the alpine meadows. Well worth our time. The lupine were out, too.
Enjoy the 4th of July and the freedoms that we are lucky enough to enjoy.
