Beaver Island Historical Society Art Show and other things

Beaver Island Historical Society Art Show took place for three days in the Christian Church fellowship Hall. I had my own little room -- which I shared with an antique quilt!

A shot of the show in progress.
Cary would come to visit on the moped!

One morning when I went out to walk the dog I saw that the spiders had been busy around my driveway.

This was a night shot of the fireworks in the harbor during 4th of July. This was taken from my front porch over the water, quite a ways a way!

4th of July on Beaver Island

4th of July on Beaver Island is a special event! There is always a parade down our main road. This photo shows the vets who have turned around and the parade comes back through the town!! Deja vu all over again!
Lloyd my neighbor in his army jeep.
The island's fire brigade.
Thousands of people came for this event!! Never seen so many folks on the island at one time.
Don't worry - it will turn around and come back again....

Lots of electric cars in the parade.

My friends HelenGrace and Dick who I watched the parade with on the Museum porch.

Kids and dogs....
CMU Bio Station is about the only float that stuck to the theme of the parade: island treasures.

They throw candy from the vehicles and sometimes spray water! The kids scramble for the treats.

Island Airways did a flyover and then came back and did it again with the missing man manuever.

And here was the beaver from Beaver Boat tique.
