The party started under a large palm covered bohio that sat poolside, just steps from the sandy beaches. Everyone brought some finger foods to munch on along with some adult beverages to help bring in the new year. Before mid night we headed down to the beach to watch the spectacular fireworks display going on all around us. An array of Chinese lanterns dotted the night sky filling it with splashes of white light. These miniature versions of hot air balloons were ignited by tiki torches until they heated enough to soar into the dark sky. These fearless creatures of light made their way through mesmerizing bursts of colorful fireworks. As bright lights filled the air Latin music pounded from nearby party sites, with an array of old and young enjoying the festivities. The waters of the Pacific Ocean glowed from the lights overhead, as we bid farewell to another wonderful year.
