The 4th of July - Samoa Style

When you have an independence day to celebrate, what better way to do so than to have a beach party.  A good old fashioned, hot dog roast, potato salad, chips and 60s music!  I let the senior missionaries use my beach and view of my island just for this occasion.

We decorated with floating balloons and coconut tree stumps decorated with the good old red, white and blue.

Add a few chairs from one of the Church fales and tables from the mission office.  Top all of that with our homemade barbecue grill - the old tire rim, with three legs and loaded down with charcoal briquettes.  Put the grill in the water so you enjoy the cooking.  Then, put an iPad and a speaker on top of one of the stumps and crank up the Beach Boys, .... and DUDE you have a party.

 The water was sooooooooo warm, a little tube floating time before the food.

 And when the last of the sun was setting, the last of the seniors left the water.  The waves gently lapping on the beach with another day in paradise enjoying our freedoms!!!!

Happy 4th of July America from our tropical paradise in the Pacific!
