On July 3rd after visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific, we were treated by Jennifer, Gary's cousin, Jim's girlfriend to a visit to the Hollywood Bowl for fireworks and a concert by the Las Vegas icons of the 60s, the GoGos. I knew only one song by the GoGos but enjoyed their repertoire. The fireworks that followed were spectacular.

On Independence Day we spent the day with Gary's nephew, Eric and his wife, Nancy. They drove us to Santa Barbara where we visited The Mission Santa Barbara and the Courthouse. Both were very interesting. The Courthouse had a clock tower which we all went up to get super views of the city and the surrounding countryside.

After lunch and glimpses of the Santa Barbara Independence Day Parade, we drove to Ventura where we had cheesecake (brought by Nancy) and drinks on the beach. It was a lovely end to a lovely day.
