Luckily for us, the only rain we experienced was a light drizzle on the boat ride and when we arrived at the island it was gorgeous blue skies.
When we checked in, we were given little laminated cards which functioned as our boarding passes.
After dinner, we rode up to Mallory Square to join in on the sunset celebration. Unfortunately, it was rather similar to our experience last year where there were just too many clouds in the sky to make it enjoyable so we didn't really stick around for long.
EDWARD B. KNIGHT PIER
We decided to bike around some more and ended up at the Edward B. Knight Pier where there were dozens of other cyclers. The sunset view from here was much prettier, we thought.
