Alas, mine has nothing to do with sailing other than there were sailboats in the background.
This past year, 04 July 15, I was at Soldier Field in Chicago, Ill. USA for the 'Fare Thee Well Tour' of the remaining members of the Grateful Dead. I was in the nose bleed section of the west wall looking out over Chicago Bay and Lake Michigan and the boats out there. Atop the north wall the American Flag was spotlighted, flapping in a steady breeze, Above the east wall was the Steal Your Face Skull, and above the stadium was a blimp circleing, with the little dancing bears flashing in LED lights
. About 9:00 pm a huge beautiful 3/4 moon rose over all that. About 10:00 pm the cities of Chicago to the north, and South Chicago (to the south, obviously), simultaneously set off their fireworks. Then, as a grand finale, at the finish of the show the Grateful Dead set off a display that rivaled Chicago's, to the tune of "The Stars and Stripes Forever." Truly amazing. I wish I had a photo
or video, but retain only memories.
