Celebrating Beachstyle

 Channel Islands knows how to celebrate the 4th of July and we had a birdseye view of the festivities.  The childrens parade staging was right across the street from our house and we got the first glimpse as it started along the parade route.  The color guard lead the way....
 Followed by a beach worthy 'float' that was quinticentially California dreamin'.....
 I had no idea there were so many children in the neighborhood until they were all congregated to take their places in the parade...there must have been at least 200 bikers, walkers, wagon riders all smiling and ready to march their way into our hearts.
 Classic cars filled with  cheering families and decked out
 One of the cutest wagons featured a couple of adorable sisters with their patriotic on...
Yep, that's a kayak with moms, dads, kids, granparents and pets just a little micro-glimpse of the neighbor celebrating Independence Day in the U.S.A. California Coast style. 

We sang, shouted and thrilled  thru races, parades, carnivals, family, feasts, and fireworks to pay homage to those who made our blessings and liberties possible.  A practically perfect day!!!
