Strathmere Fourth of July Parade Pictures (2) - Bayview Drive
To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,
Our second batch of pictures. Many of us headed to Bayview to get another look at the parade...
Unfortunately, there apparently was some loss of traffic control as the parade came around onto Bayview. Rumor has it that a newspaper reporter, after taking pictures, actually stopped participants (and the parade) to get names. Not only did this cause a three or four-block gap in the parade, it also blocked the parade back on Commonwealth, delaying traffic longer than necessary and causing a number of participants to turn off Commonwealth before Prescott and short-circuit the parade route.
Hopefully this won't happen again.
Still great viewing though, even with the traffic issue!
