Independence Day /// 2013

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine! 

("America the Beautiful" by Katharine Lee Bates)

Our Fourth of July was a restful day filled with family, fishing, fireworks, and food. It was quite a peaceful day - the sun was shining, the wind was lightly blowing, and the water was lapping against the rocks. I enjoyed capturing a few photos of the day's events, as well as the chance to sit by the lake and read a book. Beautiful memories.
