    Hey Guys,

    Here are a few pictures from last night's boat parade here at Padre Island (Corpus Christi). I think there were close to 30 boats in the parade, and they were decorated like you wouldn't believe. Winds were blowing around 30MPH and I had no place to setup a tripod, so the pictures weren't the best, but hopefully you'll get an idea of what the parade was like. This parade is a Toys for Tots event with neighbors able to donate toys to the boats when they come by.

    Here you go, Coast Guard boats! The 41 sure would make an awesome offshore boat! The small aluminum boat is cool too, and very fast!
