On this Wednesday 4th of July Jess and I joined my family including my sister and her husband for Fireworks on the upper James River west of Richmond from the boat. It was a nice night for anchoring under the stars and watching a great fireworks show.
Actually happened on the 2nd. I joined Blake, Julia and other friends aboard Tradition for a cruise down to Edentide to watch fireworks.
Some photos of shooting off Fireworks by the Piankatank on Saturday night. All photos taken with a Nikon D7000 Fish eye 10.5mm lens F5 8-10 second exposures ISO 800.
Some photos of sparklers and Fireworks in Richmond’s Dogwood Dell.
I had an awesome weekend in Deltaville. It started with the Inaugural Deltaville 5k. With zero training I ran the whole thing and had a respectable finish of 26:07.
I took the weekend off from sailing to heal a minor wrist sprain and so I went right from the 5k to doing race committee at Fishing Bay Yacht Club for the offshore Cut Channel Race. I got a lot of great pictures of the offshore fleet here.
Saturday night was 4th of July partying, fireworks and swimming. For Sunday’s racing we thought it was going to be a bit windy so I jumped on a Front Runner as a 3rd crew member, but halfway through the race the wind died and I sat out the next two light wind races and instead went sailing on a Byte in the afternoon. Saturday night we again watched Fireworks.
Monday was FBYC’s One Design Long Distance Race. I normally would have sailed my Laser in this, but again I was sitting out to rest my sprained wrist. I went out for the start and the first two legs to get some photos. The entire collection is posted here.
Happy 4th of July. Here’s a few pictures of Fireworks over the Piankatank on the 4th: here here and here.
