Memorial Day in Sea Cliff, 9 AM
We had heavy rain all night long, and it was still raining until about 7:30 this morning. I was up at 8 and the rain had stopped, so I grabbed my camera and headed up to town for the Memorial Day Parade. It was cancelled, unfortunately. No one wants to march in a downpour. I have been to every Memorial Day Parade since 1988, I think it was. I didn't used to go, but that year a colleague at work wrote a piece about growing up a small town in Maine, and how he loved the parade. He want back 30 years later, only to find that the parade was no longer taking place. I thought "If we are so fortunate in having this wonderful parade in Sea Cliff, the least I can do is attend, to remember all those who have lost their lives." So it was a disappointment to miss it this year.
