|Q-flag flying to signify our readiness for the onslaught!|
|They stopped at each boat flying the Q-flag|
We sat patiently waiting and watched as the dinghies spread out across the anchorage. They seemed to have different strategies of attack!
Some sped out to the far reaches of the Bay where we were anchored, while others methodically picked off the boats one-by-one, beginning with those closest to the beach. It certainly made it more manageable for us to have them spaced out!
|The first arrivals with painted faces and coloured hair... or not!|
|Young and old, no matter! Keeps 'em out of bars!|
|They kept on coming well after sunset!|
|The candy is still holding out, but it's getting low as this boat sneaks around the bow!|
|Not a great picture, but this girl on the right was my favorite! CREEPY!|
|Good Job kids - using your dinghy light! Some adults could take a lesson from these young sailors!|
I heard someone say that there were nearly 60 kids participating in this event. What a great turnout! I'm SO glad we bought those extra couple of bags of candy or we would have run out way too soon!
The kids didn't just go out and buy a costume. They had to gather whatever bits and pieces they could to make their own. Our expectations were far exceeded!
What fun to be able to do something "normal" but with an Island flair!
