In Seattle, there is a big company that does cruises, like dinner cruises. At Christmas time, this company take their boats and comes down the shore stopping at the beaches along the way. One of these beaches is about 10 minutes from our house. So on a very rainy night, we loaded the kids up and went to the beach. They had a choir on the boat with a sound system so we could hear the carols on the beach. The event was complete with a bonfire and Christmas cookies. The rain didn’t keep anyone away as we even had a hard time finding a parking spot!
