Pensacola Beach - Lighted Boat Parade

It was was was on! Mother Nature was funnin' with us today.

The rain came down in buckets throughout the day (as evidenced by a leak in my house). At last, with concern that the weather may be too rough for children at the landing and boats en route, the parade was canceled.

But wait! At the last minute, skies cleared and a few remaining captains decided to make the run if Santa was willing!

A decorated sailboat is highlighted against the clearing sky when word comes that the parade is on.

Taking a photo of a moving boat from another moving boat at night can only result in an artsy photo of the sailboat's Christmas lights!

Santa takes a moment to think about the Christmas lists he's received as we near the dock at Quietwater. A Webkinz for Lindsey...transformer for Jonathan...a Wii for much to remember!

Upon landing, Santa concentrates on the children who've brave the weather to talk with him.

Merry Christmas, Pensacola Beach!

Cool shot of the moving lit up boat!
We have a boat parade too, in Downtown SD Harbor.
