…thinking of you

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 12:14 pm

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the puffy white clouded, seasonal, azure skied, serendipitous, sailing and always sexy island of Nantucket! Great be with you on this High Noon, ‘down on the docks’ of ye ‘ole Hyannis Harbor, where only a few moments ago the 46th Annual Sail boat race, indeed the world famous ‘Figawi’ jettisoned off from Hyannis Yacht club; sporting elite sailing vessels to those not necessarily on the Forbes Christmas list. Great boats all, however, making this yearly trek; sailing south, in Mighty Nantucket Sound.  Destination; 27 nautical miles south/southeast of said Hyannis/Hyannis Port, lo, sailing past fabled “Brandt Point LIGHT” (the light with nine lives); a beacon of hope to many, living at the far northern shores of this ‘far away island’. (credit: Wampanoag Tribe whose land this originally perfectly stewarded by…)

A good time to be had by all, the festivities going off last night at Hyannis Yacht Club and ‘a heck of a day at SEA‘ sir is always on the menu.  For like the Oscars there will be many a gala or ball to attend and plenty of good food and spirits to be consumed. The day also represents the official kick off to the summer season on this gorgeous island that must be experienced at least once in one’s life time, ushering in Memorial Day’s parade tomorrow at about this ‘time’. That event taking place on land, with parade up and down the awe inspiring cobblestones of Main Street in Nantucket town, with a special ceremony culminating at the local cemetery just out of town; one to remember and moreover honor those who have lost their lives serving this great Republic over it’s storied 240 year old saga…

With any luck, this simple reporter may have the privilege of meeting some of the fine radio people who make (now a five year old!), ACK FM ‘Nantucket’s TRUE island radio’ jump and thrive; indeed come alive, not only keeping the island in the loop, but bringing some darn good music with it;24/7/365, rain, floods, blizzards, endless snow, sleet, hurricanes or a beautiful summer day, or late spring day, like tomorrow is supposed to be.  That forecast according to ACK’s stellar meteorologist Russ Murley, whose accuracy and detail as a weather professional are unmatched;  Tough sledding in the unpredictable waters such as these. Solid promises for those aforementioned events to come!

SEA ya there!

p.s. ‘thinking of you on this Memorial Day’…

PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
