Yesterday the weather forecast was warm and clear. WRONG! By the time we arrived, the temperature was dropping and the fog was coming in. That is our tradition. We don't watch the fireworks, we listen. Below are some pictures of where we were, and the fog.
A bagpiper played during the party. The house behind him is a neighbor. It is a Mac Mansion. We don't like it. They took part of the view.
You should be able to see Oakland and San Francisco. The fog has hidden them and is advancing toward us.
This is looking east from the same house and about the same time. Mt. Diablo is clear and sunny.
Sundown, the fog has covered the cities and the Hills. We were so cold even though we were wearing parkas. We went inside to warm up. We listened to the booms for awhile. Then we went home. Since we don't really expect to see fireworks we weren't disappointed. We enjoy being with the neighbors from the old neighborhood. That is the point of the pot luck party.
