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. unique holiday ornament, Christmas by the Sea in camden, Maine, windjammer schooner Mary Day celebrates the holidayThis 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.

  1. Hi,
    Pictures are really great. My wife and I want to wish you all A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR. WE hope to see you guy’s in 2013,

    Take care and be safe.

  2. That beard is a lot more red than white, but that’s how Santa started if those 1970’s Christmas specials have it right…so maybe that really is Schooner Claus!

    Wishing the whole Mary Day family a most wonderful Christmas and an off-season full of as many quiet, relaxing moments as it is full of to-do’s.

    See you in 2013!
