We are now home from our week-long Fowler Family Funtime Extravaganza Vacation last week in Long Island, Maine.
We rented a house on the island so we could hang out and drink beer while watching the girls play on the beach. It couldn't have been more perfect. The house was lovely, the weather was great - we totally missed the heat wave that plagued all of our home cities while we were enjoying the ocean breezes - and the logistics of getting 12 people and a week's worth of junk on and off an island worked out as well as can be expected. Plus, no one had to be life-flighted to the emergency room. Vacation Success!!
I'm working on a post/posts with more pictures and stories about our beach fun with which to regale you, so check back tomorrow and the next day.

So, here's one more fun thing to get you in the mood...
OCMS played this song at a show they did in Boothbay Harbor, ME, last month just before the official summer season started for the Down Easters. So in honor of our time as the dreaded "Summer Folk," I offer up this video as a sincere apology and a hearty thank you to the kindly and welcoming people of Maine. Cheers!
My favorite part is the reaction of the Mainers in the crowd! Standing ovation.
