|Ghost's lit up dinghy|
(picture shamelessly lifted from Angela's Facebook)
Of course, the lights are a big part of this. Sadly, the only light we had was a red LED flashlight, but we waved it merrily (lites on Eolian this year, lites on the dinghy next year). Scott and Angela get the prize (from me anyway) for the best lit dinghy - they even rigged a bowsprit so that they could show more lights! And adding to the display, the battery Scott put into the dinghy to run the lites was kind of low on charge - the little inverter he used to power the lights kept kicking off due to low voltage, making Ghost's dinghy the one with the flashing lites! I think it added a great note to the celebration.
And amazingly, it didn't rain!
