Paradise Cove can be an alternate universe sometimes, a place apart, like Brigadoon but without the singing. And so it was on Independence Day when we had a party and a parade, and the best way to tell you about it is to show you and hope no one calls 911.
It was a beautiful day at the beach. Here's one of the tugs towing one of several fireworks barges headed to various parties along our slice of coast:
Though it was a teensy bit windy:
We had a parade:
With a drum majorette:
And the Governator was there!:
The Billy Wilson Band rocked the park:
Bernie fell in love with the bass player:
And the organizer of the event, our gracious hostess,
Marge Simpson Kathy, was very, very happy.
