Summer comes late and leaves early in Maine. Most folks say the season is from July 4 through Labor Day. That’s not very long!
Here on the midcoast, Camden says good bye to summer with the Windjammer Festival when schooners from the area join Camden’s fleet and take over the harbor.It is a fun filled weekend with activities and displays of all kinds.
Nothing brings more cheers than the lobster crate race, definitely for the young and nimble!
Some schooners are available for cruises on Penobscot Bay, always a favorite adventure for visitors. With all sails up, the windjammer is a majestic sight, a symbol of a bygone era.
Other schooners host an open house to give folks an idea of what it’s like to live aboard. It’s pretty close quarters, and one has to have a real sense of adventure to enjoy a week long stay. From what I’ve heard, the food is quite good so that’s a real plus!
Yes, summer goes out with a big bang on Maine’s midcoast, but except for giving up my white jeans I’m going to enjoy it until it’s officially fall.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
