Low-key Independence Day. Grilling and the off to Long Beach (Belmont Shores) to watch the world's second shortest fireworks show ever, shot off from the Queen Mary. Seriously-- ten minutes long?? When you could see both Huntington Beach San Pedro's shows from where we were watching, both of whom did a usual 20 or 30 minute long show??
Clearly we chose poorly. The crazy long walk to get to Coffee Bean on 2nd St. in Belmont Shore probably didn't help either. All good though, with fireworks and grilling and friends, we can skip the small stuff... Happy Fourth of July!!
