2012 Pacifica 4th of July


Some photos from our 4th of July barbeque on 7/4/2012.  Click on any picture below for a higher quality original.    Below are Katherine Chung, Tania Stoose, and Kyle Barton about to do a red white and blue "Jello Shot" to start the party.


The blue sky and clean deck at about 1pm before guests started showing up.


We hung "Stop! Loft is Off Limits!  Please do not climb stairs" sign on the downstairs loft.  Sometimes guests and children can be clumsy.


Katherine made red white and blue jello shots.  The "white" is "Cool Whip".


The hard liquor "bar" setup for the day.


Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, California nice and calm early in the day.

Picture from above about 5pm, a little fog starts blowing in, that's Natasha Kazatsker (in red) dancing with Heather Wagner (blue dress, yellow shoes).

I call this picture "two Heathers".  In the foreground and right is "Heather" (came with Stuart) and in the background wearing a bright blue dress is Heather Wagner.


Katherine, Dan Evans, Kyle (on phone) and Dan's blue haired lady friend Carmen.

As fireworks begin on the beach, you can see the smoke trails.


A peaceful night by the fire pit with the ocean in background.

Fireworks at about 7:40pm, picking up some steam.


At 9:07pm the beach was in full "Apocalypse Now" mode.


Below is a movie of some of the fireworks on Pedro Point and Linda Mar Beach on 4th of July, 2012.  Remember that these are pretty much all illegal, which I think is a nice tribute to freedom in the USA.  Fight the power!  Click here for a REALLY high quality QuickTime original (won't play on Microsoft Windows).


Below you can make out Jerome McCarthy (hat) by the fire, with Tania and Kyle.  I think that's Yev facing away from the camera. 


At about 2am the party wound down and most people left.  This is the "bar area" that got some use.


The next morning, a few empty soldiers.


All done!
