For Independence Day this year, I ventured down to watch the pyrotechnics from my fiance’s brother’s place, which is about half a block from Lake Superior.  My fiance Kristin, her brother Jake, their parents and Evan took in the show from the rocks along the shore as the rain cleared out for one night that weekend to make way for almost perfect conditions.  The shoreline of Lake Superior in Duluth is a great place to watch the fireworks because you got an unobstructed view of the Aerial Lift Bridge while also being able to see Superior’s fireworks show.  Another cool thing I noticed for the first time is that if you look out across the lake toward Wisconsin, you can see about four or five other fireworks shows in other cities.  For now, check out the images below and be sure to check back here in a few days for another post.

The Aerial Lift Bridge, for you non-Duluthians, is the yellow bridge directly under the fireworks. It connects Park Point to the rest of Duluth and was built for the city's shipping industry.

Looks like a shell exploded on the ground in the image on the right.

Evan handling fireworks for the first time. As you can see, this was serious business.
