Independence Day...

...so far.

Flags everywhere...



...except at the beach, which was packed with people, very few of whom spoke English (which is how it it is here in la Ciudad de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles in A.D. 2008)...



I'm sure these Civil War buffs, who were demonstrating their cannons, spoke English, as did the police on patrol...



Across the bay, the Navy was holding open house on one of their ships...



I wonder if the next Revolutionary War will reclaim the former Long Beach Navy Yard from its current owner, China Shipping?

Fireworks photos later, if my back cooperates long enough for me to walk back down to the beach....
