Every year on the 4th July we dress up the boats (and ourselves) in preparation for a fun boat parade filled with family, friends and really anyone who wants to join. The boat journey itself isn’t long but meanders through the water channels of the neighborhood finishing (with a boat tie-up) at the beach. The parade has been a tradition for several years now and every year seems to attract more and more eager participants. It’s filled with the sound of music, boat horns and happy voices and really is one of the highlights of our year! As usual the parade didn’t disappoint this year and I thought I’d snap a few photos along the way. This was the first parade Grace was really old enough to enjoy and she had an absolute blast boat hopping and joining in the sign alongs! A wonderful welcome to the summer and another great one for the books!
