PNW: Seattle - 4th Plans

I intend to take "Hello Gorgeous", and guests over to Lake Union for the 4th. The last few years I have motored out of Elliott Bay to the grainery (seattle downtown)...but the fireworks is much better in Lake Union. You get dazzled by three displays instead of just the one...

My intentions is drop anchor out of Gas Works Park on the eve of the 3rd. Was wondering if other PNWers would be interested in rafting up etc...

Otherwise what are your plans?

On our way to Desolation Sound. Anyone know if there are any big fireworks displays in the San Juans on the 4th?

Ray- Friday Hbr has a big display, maybe Roche too, and I'm pretty sure Lopez has a display in Fisherman Bay. Blakely Is. has a fireworks battle with the guy over on the south end of Obstruction Is. He usually scores higher on quality (he's been known to hire professionals) but we blow him away on quantity!

Have a great trip north, looks like summer has finally arrived in the PNW.

I think I'll see if I can determine where the highest spike in emergency room visits occurred last year on the 4th, and then we'll anchor 100 yards from there. It should be fun to watch other impaired rednecks playing with explosives.

BTW, is the guy on Obstruction Island you speak of the same guy who has the dungeness crab sculpture hanging on the side of his cabin? My partner at work starts drooling everytime he sees that sculpture. He thinks it would look great on his wife's coffee stand in La Conner.

We'll be at Elliot bays fireworks show, going down from edmonds than back home. Have four guests that paid, ie made the high bid from a scholarship auction for a landscape contractor assoc I belong too at the annual convention. Should be fun.

We're rafting up dinghies and kayaks and anything else that floats outside our houseboat off of Eastlake. If you see us, say "hey!".

We'll take in the Lopez fireworks this year, anchoring in Fisherman Bay. For the past 5 years I've alternated driving to the Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor shows. FH is usually a little bigger, but then there are the crowds... Roche Harbor can be pretty cool, butthen there are the big motoryachts... So we'll try what is perennially known as one of the "biggest small shows" in Washington - The Lopez Island fireworks. And this year they will be "simulcasting" music with the fireworks on the new radio station there, KLOI 102.9 FM.

I'll be at the house overlooking the display on Big Lake, watching from my deck on the 3rd. I don't know what I'll be doing on the 4th though.

Ray- could be, there is something orange on the wall but I've never been close enough to see what it is. He's right on the south point of Obstruction by the green marker. In years past he has put on quite a show, brings in a barge and pyro's, last year wasn't much though.

John or Moonfish,

either of you know whether a person can walk the dog on that sand bar spit at the entrance of Fisherman Bay? We're travelling with a Boston Terrier and no matter how many times I show him how to pee over the side he just hasn't learned that trick yet.
