    What has turned into an ad hoc weekly Channel Islands Harbor Pandemic small boat parade continued Saturday afternoon- bigger and better than ever. Although the boats weren’t as large and grand as those in the annual yacht clubs sponsored Christmas Parade of Lights, they were far more numerous- dozens and dozens and the crews- dare I say- more festive.

    I spied  pitchers of Margaritas and mucho cerveza on board while photographing participating craft.

    A small mock tugboat led the parade and tooted its very loud ship-sized horn as it acted as flagship for the flotilla.

    The flagship at 5-9-20 Channel Islands Small Boat Parade, Pandemic Edition.

    It didn’t look much like essential activity or even exercising, but it sure was a blast and good for peoples’ sanity. Hundreds of residents and other observers looked on vicariously and cheered from the shoreline. We’re sure it generated some very badly needed local economic activity, too.

    It was our small victory over the pandemic which has cast a shadow over our lives. Hope our readers can enjoy it a bit, too!
