U.S.A. INDEPENDENCE DAY – July 4, 2018

It’s that time of year when the United States of America celebrate their independence. It’s a great time to look back at history to see what it really means. It’s also a good time to read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. So often, with all the emotion out there and a press that seems to enjoy pitting American citizens against each other, we forget about what this great country is all about and it’s foundation.

On my walk this morning I couldn’t help but notice all the good citizens of Coupeville displaying their colors in support for our country. Here’s a taste of what I saw.

Captain Joseph Clapp House, 1886.

I love the big porch on this house. I’d love to sit and swing a while there.

I hope you have a great Forth of July. Have fun but be safe!
