Barge O' Fireworks
I'm no fan of fireworks but I am a fan of spontaneity, adventure, and photo opportunities. So, when Bill suggested that we go to Compton Hill Reservoir Park to catch the Fair STL fireworks I agreed. We grabbed the kid and a blanket and were on our way. Even though this idea came to us late - around 9pm - we decided to take our chances that we would be able to find a spot to sit. While the east side of the reservoir, which faces the Arch, was mostly full, the northeast side still had open spaces. It ended up being a great spot since you could see firework displays from both Webster Groves, which were the earlier of the two, and STL.
