Riding the Sweet Chariot

Good morning everyone. Well this has been one crazy but beautiful summer. I am not certain how it happens but life gets busier by the day. And not necessarily easier I might add. Of course it doesn’t help that this writer tries to do more than one person is capable of. I know the lack of a blog may appear as though I am not doing much but any of you that have been aboard know we have been busy little bees.

This years Sweet Chariot Folk Festival was another great success. We were quite fortunate to have the performers come aboard to perform a few shanties. Cameras were clicking and I am guessing a few videos will appear online somewhere. I will hopefully upload a video to our Facebook page. I have never done this so let me know if it doesn’t work. If you haven’t been to our Facebook page you should check it out. Some cool stuff there. Guests really enjoyed this years show.

Leaving Camden on Monday was quite interesting in a very thick fog. As happens often we found a scale (a fog free area) under the lee of North Haven. Looking back through the fog we could see a few other Camden windjammers appear slowly as they broke into the clearing. First we saw just the flags at the topmasts and then their hulls broke through. We came through the fog to find clarity on our way to Sweet Chariot. Can a trip aboard a schooner be any more inspiring?

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
