Holiday Boat Parades 2012

Just like last year, I decided to do the light parades here in Jax. Well, ok, so The Hard Six wasn't quite ready for the big Downtown Jacksonville one, but we did the other two - Christmas on the Creek (Julington Creek) and The Whitey's Fish Camp parade.

I didn't put a huge effort into decorating the boat this year. It was kind of a last minute thing to be honest. So no one was more surprised than I when I was presented with 5th place in the Julington Creek parade. What was really nice was that now that the cabin refit was mostly done, I was able to spend the night aboard for the first time in about 9 months. It was a great night!

We had great weather for both parades, with the rain ending just before the Julington Creek one giving us a beautiful sunset.

Now in 2013 the lights are stashed away - waiting for Christmas 2013, I can't wait.
