The weather has been very enjoyable for the past week.  It is definitely strawberry weather and it will be over shortly.  Today the humidity is a bit high and the experts are predicting heavy rain showers for Tuesday and Wednesday.  At least we will not have to shovel it.

Eastport 4th of July Parade!

U.S. Navy Ship, U.S.S Anzio had their crew and officers march in the Eastport Celebration. Each year the city has a Navy ship during the holiday. The cooperations of our senators, representatives and Navy are much appreciated. It was a heart-warming sight to see our sailors in uniform. (Photo by Manuel Santiago).
