Independence Day 2012
Ocean Shores, WA

July 4, 2012 ~ Independence Day fell in the middle of the week, so we had less visitors than in previous years, but lots of people on the weekends before and after the 4th. We saw beautifully sunny skies, but cool weather. Independence Day is one of the greatest and most amazing sites visitors and locals can see along the beaches of Ocean Shores and the North Beach. The beaches are lined with cars and people packing it in as nighttime approaches. The fireworks can be heard as the days lead up to the 4th, but America's birthday brings the most unbelievable sites you will see as the sky is lit up with tons of colorful fireworks. There are personal firework displays one right after the other. Ocean City, located about 3 miles north of Ocean Shores, provides the big firework display off of 2nd Ave, the beach access street. The Casino also put on a firework show. I lit off some of my own fireworks. I was able to get some great shots overseeing the action on the beach from my Chevy Tahoe. To all of those who have not spent July 4th in Ocean Shores -- you must come out and see it for yourself.
