I have just finished celebrating Independence Day in Seattle. Instead of facing the insanity of Gasworks Park where Seattle’s main fireworks display takes place; my pal Sylvia, her hubby Brian and I made our way to Magnuson Park along the shores of Lake Washington for a far less crowded view of the Kirkland and Bellevue fireworks displays across the water.
Brian rustled up a sumptuous picnic complete with bubbly and we feasted and chatted as the night sky twinkled and the lake waters glowed all colours of the rainbow.
Great food, great friends and sizzling fireworks made this a wonderful picnic to remember. Happy 4th of July.
