Christmas on the Water.

Is there anything more magical than Christmas lights glistening back from the water? I don’t think so. Last night we took a beautiful cruise through Newport Harbor on our friends Duffy.

We made plans Sunday evening to watch the annual Boat Parade but we miscalculated the start date so no parade.  It turned out to be the BEST night!

Tip Alert: Cruise the night before.  All the houses are decorated and boats are either lit up at their docs or cruising the harbor.


We sailed through gorgeously lit boats and homes.  The water was glassy smooth and it felt like we were gliding.

To make our night easy we grabbed a Costco tray of pre-made sandwiches, I brought my favorite spicy horseradish mustard, drinks and made Hot Cocoa w/milk.

What to bring;

Food, drinks, utensils, paper goods, and blankets to cozy up.

Tickets to cruise unless you have a bestie you can cruise out with.

If you’re bringing your A game, an aux cord, flashlight or lantern (to see food) a great music list and take pictures.

Honestly, it was a VIP cruise.

Thanks again Chris and Darcy (my old lady bestie.)

Merry Christmas! Tis the Season -T*
