April 11 - Lakewood Yacht Club's 55th Annual Blessing of the Fleet - Seabrook

Still keeping with 55 years of tradition, the Blessing of the Fleet was held yesterday at Lakewood Yacht Club.  The club was decorated with red, white and blue ribbons.  Flags lined the walkways, flowers in full bloom and grounds perfectly manicured. Boats washed and waxed and adorned with festive signal flags. Listen in as Commodore Don Rauscher fills Talk of the Bay in with this grand annual event.

The theme of course was nautical.  The men in white slacks and dark blazers and women also in white and blue attire.  Many of which wore wide brim sun hats. 

Very ceremonial, the names of the captains and their first mate were called as they made way to their vessel.  Cannon was shot and the first mate struck the bow with the bottle of champagne.  Entertainment was provided by Sam Houston state marching band and bagpipers from St Thomas Episcopal school.
