4th of July Traditions on the Columbia!

Lynn Dorman, Ph.D. // July 5 // 0 Comments

In my river neighborhood, there are several 4th of July traditions.

One fun one is the fire boat spraying people on their decks and boats [and I missed getting pictures ] Wait til next year!

Another tradition is a boat named Luscious making a round trip with a very large American flag on the mast – along with 2 more normal sized flags.


And a tradition for this [and most of our potlucks] are:

Human visitors from Hayden Island. [Dinghy is easier than driving I-5!]

visitors from hayden island

And the ever present food-seeking ducks.

I hope your holiday was fun for you, your families and friends!
