Our daughter Caitie arrived after a long drive on the 4th. It's so much fun to have her on board!
We took our bag chairs and walked across the bridge to have a good view of the highly touted Sturgeon Bay fireworks. Unfortunately a brief but strong thunderstorm blew in from the Bay minutes before the fireworks were scheduled to start. The fireworks display was cancelled and dozens of boats scurried to shore while we hiked back to our boat. So the only aerial display we saw was lightning!
Earlier in the day the sailing vessel Denis Sullivan cast off from the dock near us, headed for Green Bay. What an impressive ship! We counted a crew of 14 visible on deck as she sailed by. I'd love to see her with sails unfurled!
