July 4th Independance Day!

Well, think the Maritime museum finaly got fed up with me chasing their boats on my RIB, so they invited the whole family aboard.the Californian
We were to be their guests on a special 4th july firework cruise on San Diego Bay.
I had spent the day chasing all manner of boats celebrating the day,so was a great chance to kick back as the day cooled off.
A little tricky taking long exposure photos on a moving deck, so not perfect but a fun reminder
Only pity was we had to motor and not set sail,as a little tricky manouvering with so many boats on the water in the dark.(also the sails blocked a lot of the view from spectators on shore)
The "Broadside" to start the event was impressive to say the least with four 6lb desk guns letting fly. Think that's why the picture blurry as it scared the **** out of me
Family loved it and a great momory to keep,
cheers Dal
