The parade was, assuming it started exactly at noon, 22 minutes long. No wonder I missed it last year.
The festival was okay but I ended up not there with anyone and so didn’t stay for very long after running into enough people that I wanted to see. So I came home with plans to fall asleep during the soccer match.
Except that the soccer match turned out to be really quite exciting. So I napped afterwards.
I’ve just finished dinner and my friends should be here shortly to head out for a drink or two or three before heading to the block party and thence to the pier dance.
Fun times ahead, one can only hope…
