celebrating the 75th

If you don't live in the Bay Area, you might not know that yesterday was the 75th anniversary of the completion of the Golden Gate Bridge. There were all kinds of festivities planned over the weekend and on Sunday, there was a firework show. We decided to make an evening of it and went over to our friends Morgan & Joanna's house for a barbecue. 

We hung out in the backyard and watched the chickens run around scratching for bugs and taking dust baths.  You don't need a television if you own chickens. 

Joanna made homemade hamburger buns, yam fries and salad. Morgan grilled hamburgers.

It's tough to beat a really excellent hamburger. 

Afterwards, we bundled into warm clothes and climbed up onto the roof to watch the fireworks. The bridge was beautifully illuminated and the fireworks were breathtaking. It was one of those special sights that send shivers down your spine. We are so lucky to live in San Francisco.
