We boated down the river and docked at Esplanade Park for our 2016 St. Patrick’s Day stroll. All in red and looking fabulous, this group of sisters were posing for pictures along the river’s scenic bank. You never know who you’ll meet on a St. Paddy’s Day walkabout.
We had the good fortune at our first stop on SW 2nd St. to catch KISS hanging out in front of Lucky’s Tavern before their first set.
This bike artist did not want his picture taken, but his remarkable glue gun creation was just too cool.
Mr. Nice Guy was rockin’ the Historic Downtowner Saloon when we crossed the Andrews Ave. bridge. The crowd was decked out in lots of green and Guinness was flowing freely.
We’ve seen the Tiki Boat cruising the river but this was the first time we’ve been invited on-board. The little floating hut has a wet bar, wooden wheel and is pushed along by a 30 HP outboard.
On the way back to out boat Karen took time out to herd a mama duck and her eleven chicks out of the road into the park area when we spotted a car coming at them. It was a good day and ended with a good deed. “Sláinte na bhfear agus go maire na mná go deo!” If you don’t speak Irish, “Health to the men and may the women live forever.”
