Here are a few pictures of the Fort/lobster boats/yacht..from the Craft Show we were in. It is quite the event. The lobster boat races are something to see.
You may wonder why would a lobster boat want to be racing.
These men/woman face the elements when lobstering and sometimes they have to be able to get to shore in a hurry. These boats can move and this race gives them a chance to show just how fast. Very impressive, I might add.
It was a warm two days with humidity very high. Something, I don't do well in..then the breeze from the ocean kicked in. The beauty down in this area is something to see. I have to admit, Maine is one of the most beautiful states I have seen. It has something for everyone.
I am not a fan of winter, but that is me.
Well, we did really good at the fair and will do it again, if given the chance.
Till next time, keep looking up.

So happy to hear your fair experience was way better than fair :-]

Wow gorgeous photos! What an amazing setting for crafters, the ocean breeze must have been wonderful indeed.

My aunt just learned she landed a job in Maine. It is her dream location to live so maybe you'll run into each other up there in your big old state.

Thanks for the explanation about the lobster boat races.

When I lived in Florida, as a teenager we would take our girlfriends to the beach at night to watch the submarine races.
