On the Eve of the Fourth

As we kick off summer here in Newport Beach,
we gain a fair number of temporary residents.

That is to say that, like many east coast beach towns,
they come in droves - families, party people, and all sorts of folks
in search of a good place to cool off during the hot months. 

It really ramps up right before the 4th of July. 
So while my gondoliers and I were cruising under the Newport Blvd. bridge, there were lots of people driving over it (foolishly thinking they'd find a place
to park), coming in for the big day.

It may have been stressful on the roads,
but it was blissful as ever on the water.

Here are a few moments captured by my Nikon tonight:

Steve cruises by with happy passengers.

Jupiter and Venus glow overhead in the twilight.
New gondolier, Trent from Texas, cruises by like a pro
as an unknown gondolier rounds the corner beyond him.
