While visiting family on the lake this last weekend, we were able to partake in the “Christmas Event at Bridgewater” boating celebration. Led by the Virginia Dare and an entourage of police boats, the impressive chain of glowing boats were all decorated for Christmas. It was a beautiful spectacle in the dark, though well-focused pictures were tough to get.
Several boats had Santas aboard, bellowing the classic “ho ho ho” and wishing those ashore a merry Christmas.
If you recall from a recent post, the entire event was an excellent charity opportunity. A toy drive was featured, with the drop off point being the Bridgewater visitor center on the return voyage. The flotilla certainly was successful in this aim, and extra kudos to all involved for weathering the cold on the water that evening!
