Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer in Maine, and it goes out with a bang on the midcoast with the Windjammer Festival in Camden. On an absolutely perfect weekend most of the area schooners moor in Camden Harbor providing a real treat for crowds of people who enjoy the festivities.
Never been aboard a schooner? Well, come on, let’s go below. This vessel goes out for two or five day overnights and can carry twenty-four passengers. This is where you’d sleep. As you might guess, it’s a good idea to travel light.
Food is prepared in a small galley where efficiency is a must. Considering how good I’m told the food is, it makes you wonder how it happens.
After lots of fun, food and ice cream, the weekend ends with a bang. Crowds go home, traffic lessens and we bid farewell to an all too short summer.
i so appreciate your visit, and the comments you leave behind
