Here’s hoping you had a happy Independence Day!
We started out bright and early, up in time to see the sun rise (that’s actually been happening a lot lately). The sun rising over the ocean is a pretty sweet view, if you can ignore all the power lines.
The parade itself was a hoot! Where else but Volcano Village on 4th of July can you find a mix of derby girls, a fencing club, carousel ponies, Elvis, Elmo, Hare Krishna and little kids dressed up like bunches of grapes to promote a winery? Yeah. Pretty much nowhere else.
Afterward, we took the dogs back, and I toured the sanctuary. Maybe I’ll share more about that place in a future post – it’s amazing! Touring the grounds nearly brought me to tears (in a good way). These animals are so super blessed. After we wrapped up there, we stopped at the store, then headed home to spend the evening with our crazy crew.
