Fourth of July in Boston

Boston Skyline at Twilight
It has been many years since I been up to Boston to see the fireworks over the Esplanade.  So on this July Fourth Holiday, my grandson, a coworker from his work and I went up to see the fireworks.  Because of all the Street closures, we took public transportation in.  Because the Boston side at the Esplanade is usually extremely crowded and plus because of all the security, we decided that we would go to the Memorial Drive (Cambridge) side.  Where we found an excellent spot to photograph the fireworks over the skyline.  Security was everywhere, from the National Guard, FBI, police and fire departments and the state police.  But everybody was very friendly.  There was speakers set up near where we were so we get hear the music and all the commentary.  I must say that the fireworks were spectacular, one of the best ones that I have seen. Besides the fireworks coming off the barge in the middle of the Charles, there also fireworks on the Massachusetts Avenue bridge.
