Happy July 4th, from St. Petersburg, FL

I have left Michigan behind and am back in my adopted home town of St. Petersburg, Florida.  St. Petersburg celebrates two holidays with a very good fireworks show, New Years Eve and July 4th.  They did not disappoint last night.  I parked near the USF campus and walked past the new Dali Museum towards The Pier, a good vantage point for the fireworks.

The new Dali Museum is right on the downtown waterfront, next to the Mahaffey Theater.

The St. Petersburg Pier, a good spot to watch the fireworks. The Pier houses shops, an aquarium and several restaurants.

The Pier, at night. The exterior has an ever changing light show of its own, from yellow, to green, blue, red and pink.
