|This blueberry pie with stars & the cracked Liberty Bell was the hit of the 4th of July BBQ I was at today. The 1st guest that saw it saluted. I can testify that it tasted as good as it looked, putting me in mind of homes with porches & pies cooling on the window sill.|
As is usually the case, clouds rolled in tonight, giving us less than ideal viewing conditions for the fireworks along the wharf. Some years the event is little more than a fuzzily colored sky. Fortunately this year the clouds weren't low enough to totally obscure the show, & it was the spectacle it should be. The crowd around Fort Mason did not seem as thick as usual, so I was able to get close to the pier from which the rockets are shot off. The view was great, the fireworks seeming to fall straight down toward us.
