That little misunderstanding with King George seemed all but forgotten Wednesday as Sausalito officials tied red-white-and-blue balloons to its antique cars, paraded noisily down the main drag and threw enough candy at its curbside children to keep every dentist in town in a celebratory mood.
“Let bygones be bygones,” said Dominic Ensore, a British citizen who found himself sitting on Bridgeway as the town’s humble, heartfelt Fourth of July parade wheeled by. “We lost. I’m not going to be sore about it.”
The thing the British lost was the Revolutionary War, and that defeat was reason enough for every hot dog and beer can to burst forth from the Bay Area ice chests like exploding skyrockets.
