Boat Parade at Palm Beach
We spent today shopping around, getting ready for the offshore trip, and thanks to a friend we did not need to rent a car. The highlight of the day was the Christmas Boat Parade, where about 25 boats, mostly power, were decked out with Christmas lights and a variety of Santas, palm trees, and even a nativity scene. We made the short trip to the ICW inlet with Linda and Rick on Sojourner, and our new Norwegian friends, Emma and John on Froya. Guess who is who:
It turns out that Emma shares my passion for fireworks, and how delighted were we when the sky lit up, with the display being set off on a raft that was actually part of the parade. Splendid!
