Bernie and I walked down to the beach last night, while walking the landlady's dogs, to see the lights on the water. Turns out, last night was the Christmas Sail-Past. A whole flotilla of boats decorated with lights sailed from Oak Bay Marina to Cadboro Bay.
Sailed? Well, putt-putted with their motors. Most of the rigging was decorated with strings of lights, so there were all these triangles of light in the bay.
It was terrific, seeing about two dozen boats make such a fine display. Next year, let's find out what day is set for the Sail-Past, and maybe we'll meet them with a fleet of kayaks all lit up like Christmas trees.
