I forgot there were to be fireworks afterwards. There was a strange sound that I thought was our ladder banging into the hull, but then Buffy and Willow ran inside in a panic and wanted to hide. This was followed by larger booms and rattling of hull and flashes of light... They were shooting off the fireworks directly across from us on the beach. Wonderful...
I'm always worried about fireworks and potential damage to the boat. This morning our deck was littered with bits of cardboard and ash.
One year when we were anchored in Long Bay, St Thomas, USVI the fireworks set Hassel Island on fire.
So, the festivities have begun... Enjoy!
