Labor Day 2013

The Carver Cruiser’s Labor Day Cruise this year was to the Bremerton Marina and coincided with the area’s annual Blackberry Festival. Eight boats were in attendance (Rumours, Silver Flight, Kekoa, C & C, An Da Lis II, Anchor Babe, EBB N IVE II, and Mon Ciel) and were joined by six additional couples over the three day weekend. Crab races, a crossword puzzle contest, the Blackberry Festival food booths and a dinghy ride to The Boat House in Manette for dinner were highlights of the weekend. Here are a few pictures of the weekend.
