For the Fourth of July, Amy and I wandered around Theodore Roosevelt Island, where we spotted a turtle in the marsh and an extremely large black rat snake climbing a tree. We then sat down for mushroom cheese burgers and root beer at Mr. Smith’s while the rain pounded down outside. After making sure the weather would cooperate, we watched fireworks over the National Mall, then walked home.
Here is a video of the grand fireworks finale for you:
All in all, a very nice Independence Day.
