Last night, 9 or 10 boats lined up just north of town, switched on their generators and to the delight of the residents of San Pedro, puttered along the shoreline playing carols and throwing candy, shooting fire (!) and trying to stay in formation. It’s the cutest. One of my favorite FAVORITE ways to get ready for the holidays anywhere in the world.
…Mama in her flip flops and I in my shorts had just settled down on a long dock north of town to watch…
Okay….I’m reaching. But I need to jazz this post up a bit – my night-time, action, bright-lights-everywhere photography has taken a turn for the worse with this year’s event. I don’t know what happened!
Here are my photos from last night.
Santa rode over…
God bless his little heart – it can’t be easy getting that suit soaked in salt water.
I ran over to the starting dock to snap a few pictures while the boats were relatively still.
But my secret favorites were the little engines that could – the Charlie Brown Christmas trees. I love Laminar Fly’s little green and red lights strung over the flats boat. (You can see it above with the octopus) I also LOVED the crocodile. So so cute.
Super fun night…as I headed to dinner at Blue Water Grill, I saw kids and tourists and locals – many dressed up and EVERYONE having fun.
Everything seemed to sparkle. Especially with the best thing 99 cents has purchased me in a long time. My kirakira sparkle app.
