Last night was yet another FIRST for us. We attended our first Homosassa Boat Parade. It won’t be our last though. After leaving our site at Rock Crusher Canyon RV Park we headed to Dan’s Clam Stand for dinner. Barbie has had an intestinal bug for the past few days so she chose clam chowder and some cold peel-n-eat shrimp. I had a bowl of the clam chowder and a burger with fries. I’m tellin’ ya that the New England clam chowder at Dan’s is THE best I’ve ever had. After we ate we headed in to old Homosassa hoping to secure a spot at “The Shed”, a local covered outdoor bar at McRae’s, on the Homosassa River, where we would have a birds eye view of the boat parade. The place was packed. So we had to go with plan B, which was to drive around to the other side of the river, down Hall’s River Road to the marina. We arrived there, grabbed our collapsible chairs, and were able to secure a great spot right on the river. The marina actually had a grill set up and were cooking burgers and hotdogs plus had drinks and even candy apples for sale. Many brought their own beverages and snacks. There was a nice crowd and we had nice conversations with others waiting for the parade to start. It got a bit cool as the sun set so my flannel shirt felt good. Below you’ll find a sampling of the shots I took during the parade of about 20 boats festively decorated for the event. Remember, you can click on any picture for a larger view.
I know which was my favorite, how about you?
Finally, I leave you with a couple of pictures of our inside decorations in the motorhome.
‘Til next time…………………….
