So since like early/mid June they’ve been shooting fireworks over the lake, but last night was definitely “the” biggest one of all. We didn’t do anything special – just stood by the windows in the living room and watched the show. Well, it was fun and interesting, but honestly, it’s hard to just ignore the fireworks with all the noise (since it pretty much echos), so yeah, we sort of “had” to “enjoy” it. I know I know, I probably sound so enthusiastic. Ha 😛
The fireworks went on for almost an hour. Afterwards, it was fun watching the park and the road, as people were trying to go home. Traffic was pretty bad. It probably took an hour or so until most of the cars cleared – all while Chris and I were just sitting around in comfort of our home. Now, that’s the perk of paying extra in rent for the view*.
*note: actually there wasn’t much of choice since only few units were available in the building when we were looking for a place to live, so we sort of “had” to get the one with the lake view. But then again, the next door was also available, but that meant that it’s “closer” to the lake but the view was about the same, and that would’ve been few more bucks in rent. So yeah. That’s how we ended up with the apt with lake view – and you know what, it’s quite nice. I’m not complaining!
