Fireworks from our houseboat
We don't know why there are so many fireworks, but this evening is special as they are opening the Race Street Pier promenade. This is a little park a couple of piers north or ours and it supposed to help to rejuvenate the waterfront. Tickets for the opening event were $150 dollars each! That's why our photos of the promenade are from the next day.

I can think of a few things that would improve the usability of the new park (and only cost another couple of billion dollars!).
- More attractive pedestrian access from the Old Town district,
- Pedestrian access to the walkway over Ben Franklin bridge, perhaps from the stone pillar that's right between Old Town and the pier.
- An outdoor cafe in summer even if small. Or even an ice cream stand!
