Cocktail Cruise

On this first day of snowy winter in Vermont I’m reaching back to Labor Day weekend and a warm summer eve! Those who have been reading for awhile might remember that last summer (2011) we were one of the hosts for the Cocktail Cruise at the lake. Different docks host and each dock has a signature drink (both kid friendly and adult friendly!) and an appetizer to share with cruisers who paddle from place to place in floats, kayaks, canoes, etc.

This summer I missed the first one (which we hosted again) but was in town for the Labor Day one where others were hosting. We headed up the South Trail side of the lake and all perched around the first dock

They had a royalty theme going

And costumes to match! After three daughters and five granddaughters the prince finally arrived!!

The other wonderful hosts

If you’re really fancy you have custom glasses!

The one roving dock – Camelot the cocktail boat! (too bad I forgot to get a photo of the cocktail flag!)

This dock was especially popular perhaps since they chose to forego a signature drink and were taking orders!

Look closely….a turtle popped his head up to see what all the commotion was about!

On the way home our friend Amir decided he needed some exercise so quicker than I could grab my camera he dove into the water. Jess got a tow home from Giles and Jeff played lifeguard while Amir swam off the cocktails and hors d’oeuvres!

We all gathered on the dock to toast the sunset and another successful booze cruise
