Last Saturday evening was Illumination Night in Rockport. I drove my mom's car down to find a parking space at about 6 p.m. and R followed in my truck. The only reasonably close parking spot to where we would view the fireworks was at the library. "Library Parking Only 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Violators will be towed." However, the library did close at 5 p.m. What to do? I parked, got in the truck, and we drove to the police station to plead our case. "We needed to find a parking spot for my mom's car and we will drop her off at it for fireworks time. She isn't handicapped, but she can't walk from home. It's just too far. Will her car be okay there?" After giving a description of her car, we were assured that we could leave it there. Yay, it worked!
At 8:30, Mom, A, and I headed down in the truck. I dropped them at the car to wait, drove home and R and I walked back down.
We all sat on the wall on Pier Avenue. A great spot to watch the fireworks!
