SEATTLE (Aug. 8, 2010) The U.S. Navy flight demonstration team, the Blue Angels, perform aerial maneuvers over Lake Washington during the 61st annual Seattle Seafair Navy Week. Seafair activities allow U.S. and Canadian Sailors and Coast Guard personnel to experience the local community and to promote awareness of the maritime forces.

Today and tomorrow are celebrations of Seattle’s Seafair. The highlight is always a performance of the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels demonstration team. My house seems to be on the back part of their route, and yesterday, when they were practicing, I thought perhaps they were going to drop in for a cup of coffee after they landed on the roof.

It’s loud when they roar directly overhead, but I love it. Sound of freedom! Height of Summer. Older photo.
