New Year, New Decade
We were invited to a New Year’s Eve party with one of Robert’s friends a block and a half away. Will has a younger sister, so the party was geared to her group and had a balloon drop at 9pm (New Year’s in Greenland).
That gave us time to come back and relax before meeting the boys to go up to the Masonic memorial.
New this year, fake foxes (you can see some in the background). A bit off-putting at first, until you see what they are. And they seemed to work as there was less evidence of geese on the path or lawn.
The location is great for us. With the recent move of the Old Dominion Yacht Club, the fireworks were right down King street.
Alexandria does a very nice fireworks show. And having a great view 2 blocks from home makes it even more special.
The year, the weather was cool but dry and no fog. The fog last year made it seem very eerie: just flashes of color in the fog.
This time, the view was spectacular! We could see “our” fireworks and several Maryland cities across the river.
After the show, we did the normal:
Ran around the house three times with (empty) luggage.
Swept our troubles off the front and back porches.
Ate twelve grapes under the table.
And toasted the New Year!
Here’s to a happy, healthy, safe year and decade to come.
