Independence Day 2007 in Pictures


Seattle’ Gas Works Park fireworks celebration on Lake Union.

Yes on this year’s celebration of our independence that comes around every 4th of July I managed to take a few pictures. I’m sure you are surprised. Our original idea was to spend the day at Woodland Park Zoo… but then we decided that it would be too expensive… and we are too lazy. So Dan, Stacey, Casey, Jim, and I went to nearby Wallingford Park and had a picnic, played bocce ball, played cards, laid around, and generally just enjoyed ourselves on the bright sunny day. In the evening we had a Long Way Round marathon (there’s nothing like celebrating Independence Day like watching two Brits driving around the world on motorcycles…) and then adjourned to the roof to watch the Gas Works Park fireworks celebration on Lake Union. Without further ado, here are some snapshots from the day (with more of the fireworks in a slideshow at the bottom). Pictures are clickable for larger versions. For those that prefer it, I put a few pics up at a Flickr set as well: 4th of July 2007.

    Wow thanks for the slide show. I was actually out on a boat on lake union so I pretty much was in the middle of the show. :) It was so awesome that when a big on went off, I felt it in my chest. Oh man, good times.

    I’m glad to see you enjoyed your 4th!
