Seattle Day 1: Fireworks at Angle Lake

If you're in Washington for 4th of July, there's a good chance you'll see fireworks over some body of water. This year was at Caleb's family's house on Angle Lake and the private fireworks show there was better than many professional shows I've seen. It started quietly with over 100 floating red flares on the lake to set the stage, then they set the fireworks off from a barge in the 'angle' part of the lake - the show went for a solid 20-30 minutes and I was impressed.

Throughout the day the whole neighborhood gets involved in the festivities - they compete in a run around the lake, swim races, volleyball, kayak races, and top it off with a huge potluck dinner. Good times.
