Full Moon Party

the full moon party started in the afternoon with a floatie parade through the lagoon
Cruiser parties have become more formal in the years since we first cruised. In the past they just seemed to happen—word would spread, fancy food would be prepared, musical instruments came out and the night would be spent in song and conversation.

Organized parties that are planned weeks in advance and have a schedule of events are new to us. But there is something special about gathering with a group of people (many who we only have met on the radio) and celebrating the life we've all chosen for ourselves.

The cliques that seem to form--based on cruising plans, boat type and who's aboard--tend to disolve a bit at these parties. After all, it's hard not to become friends with someone once you've howled at the moon with them.

What a great way to spend the day and bonfires are Super Fun. Love watching the foul weather gear make its appearance after sunset.

It's an old wooden boat wreck, Bill.
