America, the Beautiful! Happy Birthday!

This afternoon we rode downtown to see the boats come in after a day of fishing in the gulf. It's the 39th annual billfish tournament. It was interesting to see the fish that had been caught, but just being able to be there to feel the cool breeze, the salty air, watching the children playing with no trepidation, and being able to enjoy the gorgeous sunset were a reminder of what a wonderful country we live in and how thankful I am to live in America. We were able to roam around and enjoy it all with no fear because we live in a free country. After we left the pier, we drove by a park where there are several memorials for our service men and women, and I just had to take some pictures.

Happy Birthday, America!! I'm proud to be an American.

  1. Wow, that is quite a catch! I'll have to show that to Chad...he'll get a kick out of that. So glad y'all are having a great time and a wonderful 4th!

    Enjoy the rest of your week =)
