Happy Independence Day -- 4th of July in Washington, DC

Happy Independence Day!

An apology to all of my readers who have come here seeking locations and times for local fireworks displays in and around the Roxiticus Valley (Somerset and Morris Counties, NJ). While I've kept track of the parades and fireworks in years past, this year we headed to the beach right after my mom's memorial service and then down to Washington, DC for the fireworks. As you can see from the photo on the left, we had a spectacular view of the fireworks on the mall from our room on the 10th floor of the JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.

We're in DC until Tuesday for a memorial service in honor of my Uncle Joe, a World War II veteran who passed away back in January at the age of 90.
