The Real Jersey Shore – July 4th Weekend

Those of us who head south (down the Parkway) to our beloved Jersey shore especially look forward to this weekend. Beside the sun and surf, great beach reading, sailing, eating and drinking – there are fireworks every night from far away towns to nearby beaches. In the past, I’ve been lucky enough to view them from a small boat among a multitude of small boats as they fired, boomed and rained paper and smoke directly overhead on Barnegat Bay. Fireworks bring out the child in all of us as evidenced by the very real ooohs and aaahs. After the display, while on the bay all the boats honked, tooted and blew their horns in cheering unison. Firework displays create in all of us a community of sharing in the delight, child-like amazement and fun of our youth.
