Got this little remembrance from a reader after numerous reports of fireworks at 6th and Oceanview in Yachats last night:
Part of the celebration of Christmas in the Mexican culture includes fireworks; same for New Year’s and Cinco de Mayo.
One New Year’s I was with a friend in LA. Flight Engineer. He lives on a houseboat in the inner LA Harbor. We were outside at midnight probably enjoying a tequila or two when the fireworks started going off.
I heard a familiar sound later – some hissing sounds. Somebody had let loose with an AK47 and the rounds were dropping into the channel. End of outside excursion.
—- Makes you enjoy the quiet Central Coast even more…
