City decorations would look strange there. Even their parade is different, since the floats are REALLY floating. It is held at night so that the boat lights will show. Watching a flotilla can be achilla! (groan!)
Some of the residents were decorating their homes. No, this definitely isn’t ours! (May as well unpack your suitcase.)
I took those pictures on my way to watch the sun rise one morning just before 6 AM.
Some summer wildflowers still bloom and the planted pansies wave brightly in their beds, but it’s nice to see some plants with red berries, like hollies and pyracantha.
