On our first day back from our trip to New Orleans Rose and I received a really lovely invitation to be part of an event that we have been watchers of since its inception. The San Pedro Holiday Lighted Boat Parade. Only one answer. ” Yes please”.
So yesterday evening Rose, our friend Frank and myself got to the dock at Ramon’s Village Resort by 16.50 hours to meet the crew and our fellow seafarers.
Rose is the one in the middle.
Rayo, our Captain, in the yellow shirt.
Last minute attention to the Nativity scene.
Our sister boat from Ramon’s.
Our hosts Celi and Rick. They’re obviously camera shy !
And then it was time to head north. Destination Wayo’s .
From our great vantage point we able to quite close to the rest of the boats
And the viewing stations.
We , along with all the other participating boats, moored up on the Sandbar dock, went to the bar and waited expectantly for the judges decisions. We weren’t disappointment (well not too much) . The boat we were on came 4th but our sister boat won first prize.
The overall winner.
With huge amplifiers and a sound system on our upper deck we blasted out Christmas musical favourites the entire trip. Ramon’s truly did rock the boat .
The headline for today’s edition is based upon the single released in 1974 by The Hues Corporation which reached number 6 on the UK Singles chart and number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
