WAHOO!! This makes 2 out of 5 years in which there was not a large electrical storm about an hour after the Blue’s fabulous performance. If you are not a usual reader of this blog, we are major Blue’s fans. This year we were invited to the same home on Little Sabine Bay as we were for the Forth of July. The host had a fun crowd and great food as usual. As you can see from the pictures, we were tied up outboard of one of his boats. Lots of fun was had by both parents and kids alike. We spent the night and left about 10 a.m. Sunday morning. The morning forecast was terrible, so we headed back to our slip. Nothing developed including the wind until about 3 p.m. That was OK, we got home in time to clean the boat off, it needed it, and watch the Formula One race.

The one picture with all the haze was caused by a group of 4 WWII vintage planes that preformed before the Blues. The wind died and the smoke lingered.

I have no idea the number of boats that were in Little Sabine. It had to be in the hundreds. There are also boats over by Quiet Water pier, in the Gulf and in the waters outside of Little Sabine.

We have to survive now until the fall show.
