The 7:15am Boat from Peaks Island

Now, that the 4th of July energy has departed and the August rush to complete everything before leaving Peaks Island hasn't arrived yet, we have a few short weeks of pure Summer on the island. We have many visitors but everything seems to fall into a slightly more saner rhythm. The 7:15 morning boat is the main commuting and school boat each day of the week. Yet, for these few weeks, this is one of the calmest boats of the day. Many of the regular commuters are on vacation, our visitors haven't yet started their day and the students are still in bed.

Not many people show up early for the boat and most of the people departing the incoming boat are the carpenters, plumbers, et al coming on to the island for the day. Of course, there's always Hannigan's truck bringing out another load of groceries for the day clearly marked with it's motto "If we don't have it, you don't need it"; perfect!! It's just a rather calm way to ease into the day even if a little early.
