How do you celebrate the 4th of July?

Post by Cabaiguan juan » Wed Jul 03, 2019 9:14 pm

Our day looks like: gym, pool, nap, play and then fireworks at the county club. Hopefully a cigar but not always. I’ll hedge my bet on a cigar tonight just Incase.

I'll be traveling all day, but fully expect a cigar once I'm in Florida....

The 4th was a pretty good day. We enjoyed the fireworks locally, had a blast at our town's public pool. This is a cool setting, actually. I live in Batavia, Illinois which in the days of the frontier was known around the midwest for Batavia Limestone. It's a deep creamy, almost yellow limestone. It's soft and shales after years exposed to weather but made our town a wealthy, early adopter of electricity. We're now known as the "City of Energy" due to our storied history of windmills and early electrical turbines. Circling back, our city "pool" is one of the old limestone quarries converted to a sand bottom beach. It's down in the Fox River valley so it's pretty well shaded from the west and has a wonderful little private environment.
Anyways, we spent some time there and then had a great grilled dinner. I took the evening to do some yardwork and we relaxed a bit enjoying our nice corner of the world. Not too shabby of a day.

Your “known” for being the town on the label of everything from aldi foods. ;)
