Windjammer Days

Today is the annual Windjammer Day in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. There are craft shows, food vendors, musical groups, a street parade, and of course, the stars of the whole show....the windjammers. But this morning I awoke to the sound of rain which quickly passed to fog. I despaired that the day everyone works so hard for would be a washout. But magically, at 2:30, the hour the windjammers were to make their parade into the harbor, the fog lifted, and now the sun is trying to peak through. It looks like the street parade and the fireworks are still on.

Tomorrow I'll post some photos of the scene. Meanwhile, here's a painting I did last year of one of the Windjammers anchored overnight in Lobster Cove.
