Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Parade of Rain Drops Lights ~ 2010!

Well Ventura was due.
Seems for years Channel Islands Harbor has been on the receiving end of rain for their parade.
Been years since we had rain on our's...
And we got it.
In fact it's been raining for close to four days straight.
And we are supposed to have two more days.
Then a break.
Then two more days.
Good thing we float.

Ahh... back to the parade.I have to give these people credit.
Out there in the rain.
Generators running.
2000 wire ties on the lifelines.

Two nights of guests.
Eggplant parmesan.
Empty wine bottles galore.

Great fireworks!
In the rain.

Did someone say Rain? Well it's a good thing you're not in my neck of the woods! :)

Love the lights. There are similar parades across Puget Sound. We did one a few years back. My hands were too cold putting up just a few lights so we looked light nothing compared to the rest of the folks out there. Boating in the rain just isn't as fun.

Sorry to hear about all the rain. It's beautiful here in Guaymas (though a bit dirty). We are getting ready for Christmas Eve potluck & festivities in the yard. Keeping an eye out for Christmas beer though we haven't seen any yet!
Merry Christmas!
