Fourth of July Celebration with Sandra and Mike, Family and Friends

This was my first Fourth of July celebration and all I can say is, WOW!

Sandra and Mike graciously hosted the get-together at their lovely home perched on a hilltop high above the San Fernando Valley facing north to the Santa Susana Mountains. Their terrace made for a favorable view of an exquisite dusk, a magnificent sunset and spectacular fireworks from the golf club at the foot of the hills.  (To this transplanted Canadian, what are called hills here, to me are mountains. At least, that's what it feels like while driving and trying to avoid going over a cliff.) 

Lindsay and Erica were away at camp. Julia was there-she leaves for camp soon for almost a month.  Marcia and Dick are in town-they will be leaving soon on a family "roots" trip.

It was nice to see Sandra's mum, Helena again. The few times we meet, it is a happy event with great food.

Thank you Sandra and Mike.  It was a memorable first for me.
