Let there be Lights

Tara during our first winter aboard 2009
Our Christmas light display aboard Tara has waned in enthusiasm over the last three years. We started out with gusto, hanging bright icicle lights and colorful rail lights the first year, followed by a weak display of a single strand of colorful lights on the back deck last year, to zero effort this year. Why? Although we (I more then Travis) love Christmas lights, both of us equally despise taking them down. So to get my fill of beautiful lights on the water, I went exploring and photographing other peoples light displays. Lazy? Perhaps. I, however, choose to think of it as working smarter, not harder, a mantra I will be applying when considering future projects.

When it comes to choosing the right kind of LED bar light, the size of the bar matters a lot. The bigger led bar light have more number of LED lights and therefore are more powerful. They are usually used in bigger vehicles like emergency trucks, fire trucks, and ambulances. Mid-sized bars can be seen on top of police cars.

I feel the same as you do, love seeing the houses with lights on them but do not like putting them up or taking them down.

black light led rope lights produce a vivid and deep blue color that is richer than incandescent blue rope lights. It gives a very rich glow that is best seen when lights are off. These lights consist of many light emitting diode (LED) bulbs which are closely spaced and covered with heavy plastic so in the end i would like to thank you for sharing it wiht us

I'm always torn between going all out and saying "Never mind." With Brock working for Argosy Cruises and the whole Christmas Ship tradition here, I tend to get dragged along, some measure of unwillingness,and KJ always ends up with lights. But I know that of which you speak! Merry merry to you and Travis anyway!
