July 4th

Kissimmee Celebrates the 4th of July

I’m hoping that invoking the “better late than never” theory will excuse the tardiness of getting these photos posted. They were taken this past Friday at the Kissimmee 4th of July festivities downtown on the lakefront. I had to leave before the fireworks, but while there I enjoyed photographing the crowd and sampling the food trucks. My favorite food truck find was the super friendly service and vegan black bean and plantain empanadas from La Empanada Food Truck.

There were lots of activities for the kids — young and old. It was fun to see people displaying their patriotism and participating in all there was to see and do. I hope you enjoy the photos.

US Independence Day

I was walking through Sugar House Park earlier today and this – the back of a lawn chair – caught my eye as fulfilling my need for a photo properly themed for today’s post.

Wishing my US readers a happy July 4th. May we cherish the liberties – both real and imagined – that we celebrate!

WARNING: July 5th is one of the busiest days of the year in US animal shelters due to pets running away from fear of fireworks. Please protect your pets and keep them inside if your celebration includes fireworks!
