I am going to go ahead and say, this was the best fireworks expierence I have ever had. Riding through the bay, playing a little Coldplay and then relaxing on the deck of the boat waiting for them to start. Then when they do, the view is perfect. The light explodes in the air literally right in front of you. Like the whole show was just for you. Its easier to think this when you aren't surrounded by the thousands of people on the beach.
So it was truly magical. Italy did an incredible job. During the show, it was universally acknowledged that probably the safest bet for pure beauty is simple white. As the white light filled the sky, I was honestly filled with wonder. Yet something must be said of the colors. The reflection of colored light was shining off the water, and I was mesmerized by the mirage. And as if this wasn't enough, the whole thing was on the backdrop of the setting sun and the beautiful mountains.
Janzen said it perfectly:
"It's moments like this, that make me realize why I stay on the West Coast".
