No, I didn’t spell that wrong in the post title. Think boat hulls.
We joined most of the volunteers in the park at Caribbean Club for dinner and the parade.
Everyone brought something to share to eat and our volunteer coordinator, Elena, made arrangements to have two picnic tables reserved for us.
Once again, good food and good company.
Although we had some low sitting clouds the sunset was still pretty.
It was a great evening to sit out near the docks. No bugs and temps in the mid-70’s.
The spectators that were going to watch the parade by boat in the water were starting to gather.
Paddleboards seem to be quite popular on this calm water. There were about a half dozen paddling around this evening.
The bay side bars from Key Largo to Key West were all busy this evening with Deck the Hulls parties and boat parades.
By the time darkness fell the Caribbean Club picnic and dock area was jam packed with people waiting to watch the parade.
One of the boats coming in to get in line. If these are rain clouds, we didn’t get it.
The parade got started a half hour late but we didn’t mind as we were all sitting around talking and most were enjoying adult beverages.
It was around this time I took notice of my camera and the settings. Half strength battery. I never checked my battery level, tonight of all nights. I could have taken a lot more pictures but I had to be very careful with a low battery.
There were so many more but again, a low battery kept me from taking pictures of every one, besides they weren’t all that spectacular.
We’re glad we went!
