A Few that Pleased My Eye.....and something curious!!!


We had some 4th of July fun. Coeur d Alene is a resort town and pops all summer. Each year they do a wonderful fireworks display and a big parade. Above is Fox doing a fun sparkler...kinda looked like a cowboy hat LOL!!

The parade goes down the main street and then the riders and floats head back to the start point by going right down our street. So instead of crowds and craziness..we just sit and watch them go by.

They are just as lovely for us..as they slow down for the kids to see them! So much fun!! Like a private parade!!! I love that!

Ok....so tell me if you might think you know what these are...not pixie cups as I first thought...I will give you a little hint....

The jar was a science experiment..full of vinegar, a nail, a copper penny and electric current...these grew after the current was off. What do ya think...??

Happy Saturday all, Sarah

It's fun to see the different ways you are having fun with your camera.

Sregata got it right off the top...as the vinegar evaportated...it created little cups...so cool. Very fragile though...they fell to dust after I took the shots!!

I love the experiment!!! I remember those days! What great photos' you took of the 4th!

I want you to come to NIADA too!!! Next year they say they are going to be in California which is more doable that Chicago!

Jugs to you Sarah!
