On his way home to Alaska to spend Christmas with family,
my gondolier Jakob snapped this from the window of a plane
taking off from John Wayne airport in Orange County.
I got to see the boat parade as I flew out!!
He'd been on a gondola with passengers just 24 hours earlier,
watching the parade cruise by, but this was a whole different view of it.
I've seen this angle of the harbor many times, but rarely at night,
and never with the boat parade going on.
What a fantastic treat.
