Our two daughters and family came home for Christmas, and we traveled to Buena Park to visit our dear friends, Pat and Janeane. Janeane had planned a boat tour of Newport Harbor to see the Christmas Lights. She rented a "Duffy", which is an electric powered boat (Here is a link to Duffy Boats - http://www.duffyofnewportbeach.com/.) for our tour.
We took along food and libations for the tour, and plenty of warm clothes for the evening on the water. Pat's son, Deon, did a great job of skippering and was very amenable to turning the duffy around for a better approach to the scene for a photograph. The boat had vinyl curtains which we lowered to keep warm and dry as it was raining lightly. I was able to open one side of one section for photography. Deon and Janeane did a great job of identifying some of the homes. To say the least, this is not a neighborhood that I could afford, but it was great to see what people do there for a wonderful Christmas Light Show.
Here is a little of what we saw and experienced.
Thanks again, Janeane, for a great evening.
