"helping" us get ready. As soon as I start working on a project she materializes out of nowhere and gets right in the middle of things. She has plenty to say when you try to move her, too!
Last weekend was the Georgetown Christmas boat parade, one of the perks of living on the coast and a new Christmas tradition for me. It was pretty impressive for a small town, drew a big turnout, and we enjoyed it very much. Can't imagine the work and agility that goes into stringing all those lights up.
The sheriff's boat led off the parade and the US Coast Guard brought up the rear.
Besides all of us lined up on the Harbor Walk decks, there were boats full of people anchored out in the bay to watch.
Santas of every shape and size put in an appearance.
In spite of the balmy weather, there were plenty of snowmen.
Some of the boats had sound systems playing carols and others had live music like this one with carolers on the back.
Coast Guard Santa was wearing his life vest, setting a good example for all the kids watching.
So many small towns in America have completely lost their downtowns to the big box stores out by the highways. We are happy we chose to be a part of a little town that has survived and kept its identity.
