4th of July 2009 on Chebeague Island

Today almost made up for the last month - the Fourth of July was wonderful starting with the Road Races, Parade, Activities, food, lobster rolls, entertainment ... through til it started thundering and lightening around 2pm and then it cleared. I took more photos this year than ever and don't have time to sort so they will all be there starting with the Kids Fun Run at 9 am (Thank you Gail Miller and Crew for keeping the road race tradition going) Then the 4.6 mile race followed by the Parade and Picnic. Also added some photos from Tom (Etta's husband) Schutte.
