Hope everyone had a nice fourth of July! Yesterday was kind overcast which put a bit of a damper on things because I think people, especially of the Southern California variety, just expect the fourth to be sunny and bright. Welp, it wasn't the case! However, things weren't so bad. Take for instance the fact that we saw a troop of ducklings on my street in the morning. I live in a suburban area so there really isn't a whole lot of wild life around, seeing those ducks was quite the treat as you can imagine.
Anyway, long story short we biked down to Huntington Beach for a bit (NEVER.AGAIN.) and took in the freak show. Basically just imagine thousands of obnoxious drunk people in all states of undress plus the requisite piece of 4th of july red, white, and blue flair smeared and stenciled on their person chanting USA! USA! USA! UMERRRICCCAAHHH!!! etc.
Afterward we went to our friend Carl's house and had a low key bbq (much more my scene) and hung out. And that's was how I spent 07/04/2012.
