Christmas by the Sea 2014!

IMG_1154Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas?! The Holiday season seems to be here, whether we’re anxious or not, the yuletide is upon us. We have free Christmas wrapping paper/tape etc available for all those wonderful gifts you have to give, and a complimentary hot peppermint patty (hot choc and peppermint schnapps!) while you enjoy your stay!

In reality, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and those other “retail inspired” celebrations are NOTHING in comparison to what we “small townies” or “village people” call a good time. We have the lighting of the star atop Mt. Battie, the Parade of Lights in Downtown Rockland and a similar daytime idea for Camden as well. Breakfast with Santa at the Chowder House, and much, much more to occupy our time. Sheesh! Santa even takes the time to cruise into some local harbors by boat, as the reindeer stay on ice atop the North Pole. Whatever we’re doing, it’s all relevant, and made possible by hundreds of volunteers, business owners, and Community members alike who LOVE the season, and love to help out. We’re grateful for the good times, and memories that are made. For more information, if you’re here for the duration, we encourage you to visit our local Chamber of Commerce’s event on their Facebook page!

Happy Summer Solstice 2014!

It’s a special day, (the longest in fact) from sunrise to sunset of the entire calendar year. The “solstice” as it’s called is technically “official” at 6:51 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) on Saturday morning.

By it’s definition, the word solstice is from the Latin solstitium from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), because it appears the sun stops at the solstice. The solstice happens twice annually due to the Earth’s axis of rotation. Depending on the calendar year, the summer solstice happens annually in December for the Southern Hemisphere and on June 20 or 21 in the northern half of the world.

Back to reality, YAY for sunlight! We enjoy the solstice for the get-togethers around our own town, and what memories we can create in the process. We hope you find your fun, and if you’re in town, we recommend our local “street celebration” close by in downtown Rockland.

Cheers!
