Photos from the holiday weekend
Every year for a nearly a decade I've spent the Fourth of July at Cannon Beach catching thrown candy at the town's annual parade and recklessly disobeying local fireworks ordinances. This year CBPD rolled-up right after three of us spent a good twenty minutes rigging a grand finale. In hindsight, lighting that fuse definitely wouldn't have been worth a $200+ fine and having all of our fireworks confiscated. Instead of breaking out a lighter, we scattered like cockroaches. The two cops waiting nearby quickly lost interest and we even managed to circle back around and retrieve our explosives later that night.
Us: one. Police and local wildlife: zero (sorry, seagulls. Tbbbbbbbt, coppers!). Until we meet again in '09, adieu.
