I'd never been before, but I'd heard of it. Boat owners decorate their boats with lights and sail (motor?) around the harbor.
We set up in what we figured was plenty of time. We had our picnic and waited. And waited. In the frigid cold (57 degrees!). We were just about to give up (figuring we had the wrong night or they canceled the thing without notice) when the boats finally made it to where we waited.
(According to the map, they were supposed to get to our spot at about 5:30 PM. We saw them at closer to 7 PM.)
I took pictures. Most of them came out blurry. Sad face. (Well, it was nighttime--slower shutter speeds--and the boats were moving. Not a surprise, really.) But I can share a couple of them...
|Our view without boats|
|Sadly, most of the pics came out much more blurry than this|
|This boat had lots and lots of wings|
|Palm trees seemed to be a bit of a theme|
I'm not going to tell you how many pics I took. Let's just say a lot. And these were the best of them.
Still, it was a fun night, and it was great to see all the decorated boats.
