A Hot Summer July......

    My sister, Phillis, came for a visit. She was up from Florida. She loved our weather 'cause we can keep our windows open during the day... at least when she was visiting. We took her to our Clam Festival here in Yarmouth, Maine. It really is a lovely parade....
This is "Steamer".
Everyone showed their respect.


Love the music
How do they do this????
   We had a great time at the parade. It lasted about an hour and a half. Beautiful weather. The Shriners are always great to see.

   While Phillis was here we took her to Shaw's Wharf in Bristol. It's a great place to eat seafood on the water. It's a working wharf, so you get to see the boats coming in the harbor. We had a great time except it decided to rain, so we had to eat indoors. The rain stopped by the time we finished eating our clams, shrimp, and lobster. The views from the harbor are typical for any Maine harbor up and down the coast of Maine: breathtaking...
Me... I think I'm a soft shell.

Phillis.. Cute, huh?
   The week went fast and it was sad to see my sister go back to Florida. We had a great time. We will be visiting her in Florida in October. Can't wait to see her again.  July went by way too fast.
