Small and Mighty Christmas Boat Parade
It is always a crap shoot taking night shots of decorated boats, in the annual San Pedro Holiday Boat Parade. As I edit what I got with my great zoom on my Nikon Coolpix B500, I am pleased with what I managed to catch. Unfortunately, not all boats got a good picture. I would, however, like to congratulate everyone that entered – all of you did a great job. Thank you for the creative effort in decorating your boats so well and to the event organizers and sponsors for all your work to keep the annual San Pedro Boat Parade Christmas tradition alive.
This year I was back to watching the parade from a dock. I got to the Palapa Bar when the parade had just started so I moved fast to start snapping pics. After the boats were out of sight, I sat on the dock steps peacefully watching tarpon and eagle rays in the water. Eventually, my friends, Rosemary and Emily turned up. We managed to score some Landshark Adirondacks and enjoyed drinks and chatting while waiting for the parade to pass by again on its way to the finish line near the afterparty location.
Before heading back to Emily’s cart on Front Street, we did a quick walk by Sandbar. The awards ceremony party was well spilled out onto the beach. I took a picture but accidentally deleted while editing so you will have to take my word for it… or stalk facebook to see one 😀

I’m so happy the Octopus was winner winner chicken dinner, I was 98% sure that was Ronnie and Lisa’s boat as soon as I saw it – I was right. Next pic is Aids Commission, then YOLO, Shine, followed by pictures of the packed Palapa Bar party and the great dock steps for fish watching.
