After five nights, the 2009 boat parade in Newport Beach is over.
I've been on the water for this event for sixteen years now, and I believe our weather this year was the best so far.
At the end of the parade tonight, there was a professional fireworks display shot from one of the piers over the ocean, but visible from the harbor.
After it was all over, I headed over to Linda Isle to get one more look at that amazing house, and saw one of the parade boats docked in front. It seemed like the perfect ending photo for the series of Newport Boat Parade posts.
