So we had to come up with an idea of what to do for the 4th of July. This was the 400th anniversary of Hudson sailing up the river so all the fireworks were going to be on the Hudson river instead of the East river. This meant that we would not be able to see anything from my friends house in Brooklyn. I had the idea of rowing our kayaks out and watching it from on the hudson. We decided against that idea since it would have been too crowded and I was probably the only one in good enough shape to deal with the tides.
Instead we ended up going kayaking with some friends from my work in the morning. We all had a fun time and allowed me to get that out of my system. Also for some reason the town I lived in decided to do all their fireworks on July 3rd, so any need we had for watching fire and explosion we got that out of system too. So, we ended up going to my friend’s house in brooklyn anyways and just hanging out with people and having a barbeque.
