On my bike ride yesterday, I spotted some folks preparing for the July 4th holiday.
See this cheerful fellow? He's in front of a flag pole, proudly waving Old Glory overhead.
Here's one flag, whipping in the Pamlico breeze.
Happy Fourth! We're not doing much different today, because the town's celebrations are this weekend, during the Croakerfest activities. More about that, later! Fireworks over the river are also on Saturday! That'll be fun :)
