Our little starboard bow in the pic with the mega yachts. For some reason they put us in mega yacht row. We had a great slip. It was at the beginning of the marina so we got a good breeze as we were near the entrance of the bay. Was fun to be there till a mega yacht came in one night or early morning (3am) to dock at the pier next to ours and used it's bow thrusters for 40 minutes. I finally gave up on trying to go back to sleep and came up top to watch.
The best part of our dockage arrangements was the sailing vessel One White Tree was next door and Zero to Cruising, Liberty and Troupador close by. So nice to not have to get in the dingy to go see your friends. We would all meet to go to the pool, go to the parades etc. All of the activity took place on the road by the marina so you could not ask for a more convenient place to be.
Sunday Night Pot Luck
We had a pot luck on our boat. We figured that out around 4 pm. Spur of the Moment always turns out the best. We ended up with 16 people in our cockpit. (That was at last count) We sang and had a good time.
Look at all the people crammed around the table. The food was good and the company was great!!
This is a poinsettia plant (tree). I would say it is about 15 to 20 feet high. You can barely see the pink flowers.
Pretty Parade on Monday afternoon
Check out the costumes. wow
Some were really daring and most were pretty risqué
This one was so big, he had help walking along the road.
Yours truly enjoying the parade. I was dancing for Diana being a smartee when she snapped this shot.The dancing is unbelievable. The rhythm and moves unreal. If you want to see what it was like to be a part of Carnival go to ZerotoCrusing.com. Michael and Rebecca participated in 2 of the events and there are pictures on their blog.
