Often Bellingham's fanciest displays are on almost dead end streets. In keeping with subdued excitement
One of my readers informed me that her sister saw Bellingham's Erie St. featured on national television and she lives in South Carolina.
I went looking, on my bicycle. What a good way to see Christmas lights, by bicycle. Last time I did this in someone's car, the windows kept fogging up. Couldn't see much.
Erie is in an area with lots of dead-end streets. Kind of hidden away and not that many people pass by. They went through a lot of work in that neighborhood. I wonder what the birds think.
There are many lit up homes around Bellingham. I can enjoy them without having to do it myself.
Some people worry about the energy used, but I wouldn't be surprised if it still takes more energy to heat the average American home.
