One year ago today we were in the town of Port Orford, Oregon....about to experience our first ‘small town 4th of July celebration..
..a little town on the coast of Oregon..filled with the good old American spirit..
The day started off with a pancake breakfast at the local town hall..and the quilt show followed after that…
and what is the 4th of July without a parade..
or a sand castle competition
a dingy race..
and then the day ended with a big bang..the fireworks show at Battle Rock..
We thoroughly enjoyed our day last year celebrating the 4th of July with our American neighbours..
now this year we are at home in Coquitlam, but my parents are about to experience their own ‘Small Town American 4th of July’ in the town of Port Orford..
We hope that everyone has a great day!..Happy Independence Day to our American friends!!
