Happy 4th of July!

Posted by

"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Here's a couple of folks having a fine time doing their "relax at the beach" pursuit thing.

However you spend your July 4th, I hope you have a safe and wonderful day.

I love this postcard perfect picture. The umbrella couldn't be more colorful and the couple beneath it on the great expanse of white beach look like they are having a wonderful day. Happy fourth of July to you my American friend. Enjoy and stay safe.
