4th of July Party in El Burro Cove

And for those who feel a little homesick, there’s even a  4th of July Party in El Burro Cove, complete with fireworks! This annual event, organized by our weather guru Geary, has been a regular occurrence for the past 16 years. Lots of boats converge and fill El Burro Cove for the occasion. We have been lookingforward to this event for over a year!

Geary, bless his generous heart, provides an endless supply of hot dogs, organizes the beer vendors, purchases the fireworks and makes sure no one gets hurt. It’s a lot of work, even with a crew of volunteers helping him out.

But the result is spectacular and the party is a lot of fun.

Geary’s been presented with a gift in appreciation for his many services to the boating community, chiefly his very valuable weather forecasts.

"Help! I've started Talking and I can't Shut Up!"

We had an absolute blast. Thank you, Geary, for your warm hospitality, all the trips to town, your cheerful assistance and your daily broadcasting of The Amazing Grace – bagpipes version-.

Another set of Great Memories to put away in our Memory Chest.
