It was the kind of day typical of spring that with every new hopeful spring we become amnesiac about - in May it storms off-and-on all the time. We use our space heaters, we layer, we expect weather disaster at all times because in May the weather forecast is MEANINGLESS. Clouds suddenly blast up Penobscot Bay and unexpectedly down the river and have their way with us. And then they leave. On the other side of the coin there are always storms forecasted that never show up. This is true of June too.
I am not a meteorologist. If you are - please excuse my liberties.

The rain held off.
It was wall to wall with great people and I forgot to take pictures during the thick of it!
