July 4th

July 4th is a very special day here in Castine. If you ever have a chance to be here do not miss it.  It's one of those slices of Americana that are hard to find anymore. Dylan has done numerous July 4th's in Castine, this was Dee Dee's second. It starts with the parade, followed by hot dogs and watermelon and games. There's a concert on the Common by the town band in the evening. And the grand finale of a very impressive fireworks display at night. It's a good day for the crew.

After 20+ July 4th's here in Castine, it was a bittersweet day. We know we will be back for another - after all we are keeping one of our moorings. But we also know it will be different as a visitor rather than a resident. But there will be more July 4th's in new places as we look to new adventures.

Oh, and as for summer, it did arrive July 4th and has decided to linger awhile. After all, we still have adventures to enjoy right here.
