Day 81 - Northwest Arm
Saturday night we had a lovely evening party crawling. Before heading to my friend Kevin's for some fun late night festivities we dropped in to check out my buddy Steve's new pad on the Northwest Arm. We watched a lovely sunset from his front lawn, yelling out cheers to passing ships and boats. This weekend was Venetian night, when various boats do a parade of sail along the Arm and local residents light up bonfires, have fireworks and yell out drunken greetings to local boaters. Apparently Venetian night has a long history on the Northwest Arm. I had never heard of it. Anyone have any knowledge of this celebration? If you do please feel free to share.
