Peaks Island Boys and Their Toys!

As sure a sign that the cold of winter has departed and that summer is upon us is the annual visit to Peaks Island of the rather large trailer truck lugging boats down my street to the ramp to deposit its cargo of fun into Casco Bay. Over the weekend, about 30 boats from yards all over the island will once again make it to the Bay.

I enjoy seeing the smiles and shiny eyes on the boat owners riding in their vessels down my street to the sea for another season of memory making on the waters of the Bay. As the sign on the truck states, "Hauling Boys and Their Toys"---that is one huge amen brother!! With the price of fuel this season, there may well be much more time spent on the mooring but just to spend time on the water, even if it's at the mooring, is time well spent. Another boating season has begun on the island and another fresh chaptor in island living is about to be written.
