It looks like I won't be missing much being in the Caribbean on Canada Day.

Thank you Todd. I am not sure how "deserving" I am, but I certainly intend to enjoy my time away.

Will you be loaning out your A/C unit to some not quite so poor family while you're away on your multiple cruises?

Just 8 days for this cruise; not worth the hassle. Talk to me in October when I head to Rome. 🤑

I miss having the Canada Day picnic in Beacon Hill Park. When it first started, the food trucks were all down on Dallas Road below the flag pole. Was a great place for it and then the fireworks were over Clover Point.

Yes, it got quite breezy only way in the evening. I figured that’s what it might have been.

I didn’t see it. guy next to me said he didn’t see it, he was going to keep waiting in hopes it was going to happen after the fireworks.

Seattle Times:

 

 

 

48 of 55 drones pulled from lake after SeaTac's Fourth of July show failure

 

The saga of the 55 failed drones at the bottom of Angle Lake continued Wednesday.

 

Divers spent much of the morning searching, and they found 48 of them and their batteries. The city of SeaTac spent $40,000 for the disastrous Fourth of July event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A spectacular Fourth of July drone show saw 55 of 200 drones drop out of the sky, with the drone light show producer pointing to outside interference as a possible cause.

 

No one was hurt as the drones fell harmlessly into Angle lake in a suburb of Seattle, Washington.
