Fireworks from Palomar


Did you see fireworks on the Fourth of July?  Last year it was crystal clear so we saw the shows in a lot more locations, including the longest display of all out on Catalina Island!  This year the coast was pretty overcast  but we could see Ramona’s, Valley Center’s and  Escondido’s.    Thanks to TK Bergman for sharing his photo he took capturing this great shot from our deck on Palomar Mountain. 

I love patriotic music too and thought I’d share this quick video.  Didn’t know the Star Spangled Banner had a second verse!  

Click to hear a retired Marine sing and here are the words for you: 

O, thus be it ever when free men shall stand,

Between their lov’d homes and the war’s desolation;

Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land

Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
