We are anchored in position to watch to the North all along the south shore of Long Island for private and municipal fireworks displays. Plenty of social distance out here on the anchor!
It isn’t dark yet.
It isn’t 9:00pm yet.
Yet hundreds or thousands of people are launching their loads of fireworks this evening. Lots of pent up need to celebrate things, I think. Happy Birthday America!
I wish I could capture what we are seeing from this vantage point. 7.5 M people on Long Island needing to vent on the 4th of July!
160 degrees of panoramic fireworks! Going for over an hour.
Can’t wait any longer for supper! We brought the stove up in the cockpit so Shelly would not miss any of the fireworks!
It is impossible to capture the wide panoramic display of fireworks that we’ve been seeing for the past couple hours. This vid does not even come close!
Of course, it got better after dark, but the camera becomes less capable to capture what we are seeing tonight.
10:30pm. Fireworks are still going strong on Great South Bay. Remarkable.
