tonight we went down to portage bay with our friends j & t to see the christmas ships. this picture just doesn't do justice to the festive, bright, light-bedecked boats that filled the bay. i had never seen them before and it was just lovely. the seattle girls' choir sang carols from the main boat that played out over the water and at the end they invited everyone on shore to sing along to silent night. it was so heartening to see so many people out on the street and everyone so happy.
at the end of the singing they declared "ahoy to the world!" and the giant parade of christmas boats departed for the next stop on the caroling tour.
ahoy to the world, indeed!
