Summer Has Arrived!

by Chrissy McCormack

Well, so the Summer has finally arrived and man, did it ARRIVE.  How about that heat wave we had?   Well I think you all know me well enough to know where I was during it.  I was literally swimming in the ocean at this sandbar we have in Cohasset harbor – like a 5 year old kid.  My husband could NOT get me out of the water to save his life.  He set me up like a queen and tied a raft off of our boat and I laid there with feet in the water for most of 5 days.

It’s been quite a busy Summer thus far with a trip to PTown and to check out the whales at Stellwagon, my niece getting engaged out at Minot Light (our local lighthouse that flashes  1  4  3) for “I Love You” and is very special to my family.  So that was exciting.  There was a wedding right across from the cottage that had the best fireworks display that we let my niece believe were for her engagement.  Perfect timing. We stayed at the cottage on the island for a few days and have officially put my lobster traps in the water.  So with Aidan fishing ALL the time and now checking my traps, we have had no shortage of fresh seafood. Our family and the Murphy family headed out this weekend for our 20th annual trip to PTown for the week.  So I am sure I will have lots more whale - tail shots for you next newsletter, but for now, enjoy this beauty.

Funny story, we went out fishing for bait, caught a ton of small mackerel to use as bait for striper fishing and bait for our lobster traps, well one fell out and was just hanging out in the boat and Dan (picking it up like it was a dirty sock), threw it to me while I was on the dock walking away, and I freakishly caught the thing with one swipe of the hand.  Dan is now convinced that I am some sort of Ninja.

I hope you are enjoying your Summer as much as the McCormack Family is.  Please enjoy some pictures.
