Just to be clear - the Boutique and the Candlelight Tour are held rain, snow, or shine. While placement of the luminaries has been rained out the last two years, the present forecast says the chance of rain for Sunday is 0 percent. Hope everyone can come out and support this annual HdG tradition!

Our 'home' will be on the tour.... kind of. Since we live on our sailboat we are, once again this year, going to do the 'one boat lighted sail-boat parade'. We'll cruise from the amtrak bridge to the lighthouse and then anchor off the lighthouse for a while (weather permitting). Two years ago, judging by the number of flashes, it was a photo op for a lot of folks. Of course, if more lit-up sailboats come out, it could be a more than one boat lighted boat parade :-)

So from what you are saying here, you will have your sailboat, moored, right off shore from the lighthouse. So if I were to venture down Lafayette St. to the Concord Point lighthouse, I would be able to gaze upon your lovely sailboat lit up with some type of Christmas or holiday lighting? Well that sounds like an awesome photo op to me. Hope your boat arrives before I do. :)
