We have had a remarkable streak of warm, sunny weather since mid-July, but the ground is extremely dry. So yesterday's afternoon shower was most welcome, and a
few more are in the forecast for the next several days.

Winter Harbor Light yesterday afternoon.
Guess what? The summer is flying by, as usual, and we are now into August already! There might be a few clouds and showers around today and tomorrow, but almost all of the recent Mid-Atlantic rain has stayed to out south! So get out and enjoy the rest of summer before it's too late!
One way to do that is to take in the "Parade of Sail" scheduled tomorrow afternoon in Somes Sound from 2 to 4 p.m. Several large schooners from
Camden along with yachts from the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, Mass. and many yachts from the Mount Desert Island area will sail up the Sound in full dress to
celebrate the Acadia Centennial! It should be quite a show - so don't miss it. Plan ahead to get good viewing spots!

The traditional Polynesian sailing canoe "Hokulea" arrived on MDI Saturday and tied up at Williams Boatyard on Somes Sound. Her visit, part of a world voyage, honors
the centennial of the National Park Service and of Acadia National Park, and celebrates the heritage of Native American tribes in Maine. "Hokulea" sails without the use
of any modern tools of navigation. Her crew relies solely on ancient Polynesian knowledge of the stars, wind, ocean currents and waves!

Welcome to July! As usual, the summer days are flying by - so get out and enjoy the many things we have available to us at this time of year! Fall will be here before you know it, and you'll be wondering where the summer went!
Have a happy and safe Independence Day weekend! Bar Harbor will be wall-to-wall non-stop action!
