Sunday was a perfect day to watch the Breitling Air Show in Huntington Beach. The fog layers burned off early in the morning allowing for a clear blue, open sky for spectators’ maximum enjoyment. All along the sand, from Goldenwest all the way down to Magnolia, people had set up their chairs and umbrellas. Out on the water were hundreds of boats anchored for prime viewing.
Main Street was turned into a street fair of Military vehicles, booths and interactive games and activities for families to enjoy.
We chose to post up on the patio at Ola Mexican Restaurant at Pacific City. It had a perfect vantage point and offered shade from the hot sun. Everyone around us was in jovial spirits and folks, who had reserved tables along the windows, happily welcomed anyone who wanted to, to get a closer look. We all became fast friends!
Since this is an event you really have to see to experience, I’ll let my photos and video do the sharing.
I neglected to charge my camera battery, which meant that shortly after the Snowbirds finished their aerobatics routine, my camera went dead. My phone’s camera wouldn’t be quick or high quality enough to capture photos, but it did work for a short video of the Blue Angels and other jets.
I love living in Huntington Beach. There always seems to be something exciting going on downtown!
