Last Saturday was twelve-thirteen-fourteen. It was also Santa Lucia day, the most delightful holiday of the year in Sweden. It was also Libby's birthday. It was also the day of the Boot Key Harbor Boat Parade. We watched the parade onboard Carpe Diem with friends.
Many of you who live in colder climates have never seen, or perhaps even heard of a Christmas Boat Parade. They are only held in those places warm enough to be out on the water in December.
Too many times I have tried and failed to get pictures or videos of boat parades. Night photography from the deck of a boat doesn't work well. Therefore, I collected some pictures and videos from around the country and the world for your enjoyment.
