Survived the Festivities

Avalon had a double whammy celebration week set with first, the Centennial of the City of Avalon followed by the Fourth of July (and busiest weekend of the year).  In what I consider a major coup, I was not bumped out of the harbor for the duration of the party and so spit shined the boat and put up flags.IMG_0354In the parking lot of the harbor it was easy to spot my boat.  This is what the harbor looks like chocka-block full.

In other news, I had the privilege of visiting with the new falcon babies as they attempted their first flight on the ball field.  Here are the little featherheads.  They still need names, so if you can think of some good ones, please send me ideas and maybe you’ll win the naming contest.
