I spent the fourth of July in Holland, Michigan this year. While I’ve spent many summers over the years in this sleepy town by the lake, I’d never been here for the fourth.
As the fourth approached I started noticing bikes that had been decorated with ribbons and whatnot all over the place. Finally I tracked down Helen on her super amazing vintage bike. She informed me that there had been a fourth of July parade that I somehow missed! Oh well. I guess there’s next year.
