Thanksgiving Eve, Naskeag Harbor, Maine.

Thinking about thanks...Maine is still Maine, Hancock County is true-Blue, the Constitution is still the Constitution, and there was a wonderful sky out at Naskeag Point this afternoon. Days are short this time of year in Downeast Maine, and it's usually blowing...there were whitecaps on Blue Hill Bay today, normal for the time of year. 15-20 knots, often NW. Sometimes a lot more. People are still out lobstering, though it starts getting rough on gear, boats and bodies this time of year.
