Hi. Barb here.
It’s been a foggy, rainy, cold season on the Maine coast so far. But that hasn’t stopped some of our traditional celebrations.
This year was the 51st celebration of Windjammer days in Boothbay Harbor and there were lots of activities, including pirates and parades, but the magnificent schooners, as always, stole the show. You can read a history of Windjammer Days here.
This year I watched with particular interest. Boiled Over, the second book in my Maine Clambake Mystery series, which I am writing right now, takes places during Founders’ Weekend in my fictional Busman’s Harbor, Maine. Founders’ Weekend comes complete with Windjammers, so you can bet I was taking notes.
