Today, Frank and I decided to venture into town to see the fireworks. We walked with a couple of our friends from the yard downtown, and man were we surprised to see how packed it was. It was like the whole town of St Augustine came out to see this fiery spectacle. All the streets were closed and it looked like a giant concert. The Bridge of Lions was jam packed with people and the crowds expanded as far as you could see. We chose a grassy spot and people watched until the show started. It was like every other fireworks show, but the novelty has yet to wear off on me, even this many years later. As I looked around, it made me smile to see families, couples, and friends alike enjoying this; the red, green, and blue flashing across their faces, the stillness in the air, as they all ooohed and aahhed like it was the first time they had ever seen this pyrotechnic wonder.
