Gathering around the bonfire

While Wayne Pridemore was on the dock in Edmonds (see previous story) with the Christmas ships, Steve Robinson was onshore with the people who had gathered for the annual visit of the ships at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park on Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

The choir from St. Luke parish school sings

It was a cold night, but they always build a huge bonfire on the beach to help keep everyone warm.

The choir from St. Luke's came to sing carols and volunteers from the Richmond Beach Community Association had hot cocoa.

I saw two ships coming sailing in...

The crowd gathered on the beach, facing the water, to watch the ships come in to Saltwater Park.

The lead boat and the follow boat
are both operated by Argosy Cruises

The ships were beautiful, arriving out of the darkness with their lights and the music of the choir coming across the water.
