More July Fourth

Here are a few more pictures from Independence Day, Savannah style. There are actually quite a few pictures of me, for a change, thanks to John and Sarah.
Here we go tubing. To me, tubing has always meant sitting in an innertube floating slowly down a river with a cooler tied to rope trailing behind. Down here it means being dragged on a tube behind a boat–very very fast.

As it started to get all crepuscular and iambic, the musical instruments came out. Austin played his guitar, and Clay joined in for a few songs on his ukulele.

The Rubicon is crossed (or the Wilmington River, perhaps) when dancing proceeds to the table.

Austin plays many songs, including an acoustic version of a Snoop Dog rap, some Jimmy Buffet for Reese, some John Prine for Cindy and Ronnie, and more . . .

Reese and Andrea and Sarah can hardly contain their enjoyment and admiration for our skill.

Andrea shares the wonders and secrets of cheerleading “spirit fingers.” I am awestruck.

It’s getting time for fireworks. Ryan and Sarah sparkle with excitement.

Is that a fireworks display or the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
