a note from nina
small town holiday fun
Up and down the shore we are celebrating this quieter time at local bazaars, holiday sales and some really cool small town events: Tea on a Tugboat, Harbor Holiday Village, Pikku Joulu, Santa at Split Rock Lighthouse.
Late season nor’easters continue to blow down the shore building massive waves. The winds and waves mean 1000-foot oreboats hug the shore.
We are also celebrating (sort of) our early arrival of nighttime. Most of the North Shore goes dark at sunset, making it an ideal Dark Skies area for stargazing and looking for northern lights.
Have fun and be kind,
PS – it is a dry warm start to winter, we’ll be back with details once the snow starts . . . because it will!
