Happy 4th of July!
I love a small parade and Crest has the best parade on the 4th of July.Jack Maulie and yours truly quickly walked up the street at 9 and sat in our two chairs and then the Crest parade started. It was the best kind of old fashioned parade everybody can be in it if they so desire.
After the parade it was time to go to Nancy Jane park and enjoy the 4th.Who says you can't be in Southern California with millions of people and still feel like a small town.There are about 2,600 people that live up the hill in Crest. The long drive up the hill makes people feel like they're way out in the country. I sure love living here it's the best of two worlds . I can jump on a freeway and be at the beach in less then an hour same with the local mountains. You get the privacy of fewer people and yet you can be around millions when you want to.Enjoy the pictures and be sure and click the picture for a slideshow.
You can see more details of the parade, Cheri
