Happy Fourth !!!
Whether it was God, The Fates, Mother Nature, or just the mechanistic forces of global warming in action, we were finally able to string together a sunny holiday weekend, followed by an absolutely beautiful Fourth of July. How unusual! From the generally deserted feel of the neighborhood, however, it seems that most Madison Parkers were taking their chances elsewhere for the holiday (side streets were mostly vacant and you could actually find parking on Madison St. in area of The Village during most of the weekend!).
Which isn't to say, of course, that the Park was exactly devoid of people:
By evening, the neighborhood began to return to normal; and as dusk fell, many headed down to the Seattle Tennis Club or to various lakeside venues to watch the fireworks:
All in all, a pretty spectacular way to celebrate the nation's 235th Anniversary.
Happy Independence Day !!!
