During the Christmas season in some parts of the world, people take horse-drawn sleigh rides through the snow.  At the coast, we take boat rides.  This year I decided to start a new Christmas tradition – packing a special dinner and cruising the harbor with loved ones.  These pictures captured a couple of the beautiful lit up boats and harbor front homes we passed by.  These were taken in Channel Islands Harbor in Ventura, CA.  Such vivid color and beauty!

I hope you are enjoying some old, and new, Christmas traditions.
