I love when the Fourth of July lands on a weekend. Here in Wareham, the whole Tri-Beach Area (Hamilton, Swifts Neck, and Swifts) literally explodes with activity. It is the best weekend to stay on our mooring. And the weather forecast is an A for awesome.
It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s sunny. The area is alive with happy people enjoying this beautiful Wareham waterfront. It’s more vibrant than I have ever seen it. This is our neighborhood. These are our neighbors. Everyone has the long weekend off from work, and we are all anticipating the illegal fireworks display that will surely come at the end of the day. The Tri-beach outlaws always put on a show that rivals the town’s professionally run exhibition that they usually have in Onset. The Parkwood, Broadmarsh, and Marks Cove outlaws will join in as well, making it a visual extravaganza. Here in Massachusetts, fireworks are against the law, but so was dumping the King’s tea into Boston Harbor. It’s that rebellious spirit that made this country great. After all, the Fourth of July is a celebration of our greatest rebellion.
