Christmas Day ‘09

We had a pleasant Christmas Eve….by late evening there were several large houseboats anchored. We enjoyed the Christmas lights and music.

This boat was beached near our dog walking area…..the music sounded so nice over the water. We hung out and listened for a bit then headed back to our boat.

We awoke to a light rain…by 10am it had stopped and a bit of sunshine warmed the morning enough for a swim….Jim was first….


He checks the prop for weeds that may have drifted in during the night. We have about 1 1/2 ft of water below the keel.


I decided to join him. Jim says the easiest way is to just jump in and get the shock over I tried it…

the water is so clear that a snorkel is a must….you can swim right up on fish and turtles.


All in all it was a nice day.

We just got back from our last trip ashore with Raisin….the night is beautiful…the moon has a huge ring around it. There are few lights in here ..other than the Christmas lights on a couple of boats so the sky is very visible.

Merry Christmas everyone.
