Good morning everyone. Christmas by the Sea in Camden is the start of the holiday celebration season in the midcoast. Festivities around town bring folks out in force. Wreathes are hung on each lamp post. Storefronts are beautifully decorated. And the star on Mt Battie can be seen from miles away. Santa arrives by lobster boat. And atop the schooner’s mainmast the crew has placed one gi-normous Christmas tree complete with star on top. This year’s tree has a little more of the Charlie Brown feel to it but it is no less a symbol of hope and a natural celebration of the solstice soon to be upon us. When I put the elf hat on I am carried to a place I hold in my heart all the year long. OK, lights may or may not be a little bit of a challenge for me. Never fear, Katie, Jennie and Jim saved me from myself by unplugging the strand when they saw my predicament.
Be well. Do good.
