Happy New Year ! (Weekend Reflections # 483)

Newport Beach, California

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I were finishing a walk along the harbor on Balboa Island when we saw bright lights and heard carnival sounds approaching. That gave me enough time to get a shot of the elaborately decorated yacht as it passed by. It was a sight to see: Ferris wheel spinning, carousel turning, roller coaster rolling with all the sound effects. We saw it again during the annual Christmas Boat Parade.
Note: The dark areas obscuring the reflected lights at the bottom of the photo are rowboats tied to the dock and the shoreline.

A happy and healthy 2019 to all!

That must be a pretty sight, as are your pictures. I have never seen a carnival activity on a boat.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and to you all.
