Santa on the Water

Wednesday 23 December 2020

 

The sun came out and Santa hit the water.
The Coronavirus did not stop him, his transport or his musicians.

With Santa suitably  isolated in the fresh air on the bow of his aquatic "sleigh" waving to all and sundry, and Captain Rod Wenzel and the Brisbane Water Brass Band all meeting the COVID group number and spacing requirements on the bridge, "Doctors Orders" set sail from Marina Cove about 5.30pm for their clockwise Christmas Cheer trip around the waters and canals of the Island.

 With his flotilla of cruisers, tinnies, a jetski and fishing boats, Santa worked his way slowly around to Sandy Cove and Sandy Inlet via the canals in between.

Islanders were spotted in many vantage points to wave back to Santa and listen to the "brass" carols, as well as groups of Main-Landers (?) along the shores of the Merritts Wharf  channel, where he was preceded by three canoes from Central Coast Outriggers.

The Island residents once again thanks Rod and Virginia, the band...  

for their time and efforts in celebrating Christmas and drawing people together.
