I'm told it's foggy this morning, though from my window it just appears overcast. Maybe the Cedar Island & Swan Quarter ferries were blowing their fog horns eary this morning, but I was still asleep and didn't hear them. As I write tree frogs are peeping from their hiding places, and birds are twittering in the branches, but otherwise the morning is still and quiet.
The Memorial Day weekend crowd has mostly returned home. We are anticipating a few days to catch our breath before the Ocrafolk Festival begins Friday evening with a community pot luck dinner and benefit auction. If you're planning to be on the island this weekend be sure to stroll down Howard Street and take in all the music, storytelling, and crafts. It is always a super festival.
