OCEAN BEACH, CA. Fireworks at the end of the OB Pier are always good for a huge crowd. The beach, the pier, the surrounding blocks, the overlooking hilltops, and the cliffs are packed. It seems like the whole world comes to OB for the fireworks every 4th. And why not? They’re great!
To capture this part of the end of the world, Jeff Stone took these last night up at the top end of Del Monte Avenue.
Some people in OB refuse to leave the community for the entire day, afraid of losing their parking spot or not wanting to deal with the crowds anywhere else. There’s no need to leave, so why bother?
But everyone in this neighborhood knows that it’s on Independence Day every year that we have to share our fine town with the world. For, don’t forget, the Declaration of Independence was signed this day in 1776. The nation was born. For better or worse.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
