Sure, you can sit at home and watch the fireworks on your television. But the experience will not be the same.
So this year three of us–my husband, one of my daughters, and I–decided to brave the traffic to get an up close view of the fireworks. My husband plotted and calculated for days, finally coming up with a reasonable plan.
We drove to the U District, found a parking place, and began to walk.
The entire event, including the walk, took about 3 hours, but I’ve condensed it into a video that is a little over 3 minutes.
This will give you a taste of the experience, but only a taste. To get the full flavor you have to experience it yourself!
