Default Sign of the times 4th of July

We went out last night for a cruise with the boat, first we went south toward Forked River up the Barnegat Bay only 2 boats were out? then we went north to Bricktown NJ. Headed to view the Fireworks at Windward Beach. It looked like winter on the bay.. maybe 10 boats at best. If this Goverment dosen't open there eyes soon we are heading for a depression! Tonight will tell the story, Toms River/Pine Beach fireworks are the largest in south Jersey on an average of 2000 boats come. This should be interesting.
Oh By the way Happy 4th.

I think I saw it, but it was traveling too fast to make out any details.

I think it's great-this is how the bay use to be in the 60's when I grew up!

There were 1/2 the usual number of boats in our bay last night for fireworks. Today seems to be a normal holiday crowd.

I've actually been surprized how many boats have been out on the Hudson & Long Island Sound .Almost to the point of normal. Last night Fireworks at Haversrtaw was packed and it was raining. I'm approaching the 50 hour mark already this season.

Frank,

I'm not sire when you got to Windward, but they ended up cancelling Brick's fireworks. Wind coming from the wrong direction from what I heard...
