Celebrating Independence Day

Christmas is my favorite holiday. Independence Day is a very close second. One of the reasons that I love it so much is that I get to celebrate at one of my favorite places on earth.

For many, many years my Dad's family has owned a cottage on the bay in Hull.

We celebrate every 4th of July at The Cottage with lots of swimming, 



and hanging out with family. 

My Dad celebrates with his annual swim. 

 When the tide goes out the kids (and some of the adults) go hunting for clams. 

The days bounty.

I hope you had a great 4th of July.
God bless America!
