Stonington puts on a terrific fireworks show to commemorate Independence Day. They shoot off the fireworks from somewhere in the harbor, and you can see the display for miles. Not bad for a small seaside community at the end of Deer Isle!
It’s not easy taking photos of a fireworks show with an iPhone, by the way.
If you want a good laugh on this very hot Fourth of July, you might want to give a read to Dave Barry’s classic take on the Fourth.
It’s time to break out the red, white and blue outfits, decorate your bike with some crepe paper ribbons, glitz, and flags, blow a bubblegum bubble, and make your own parade to celebrate another year of American independence.
Happy Fourth of July!
