Salem Harbor

Salem Harbor

The Salem Harbor maritime festival was a mix of sun and sudden rain storms on its last day.
There was the tall ship, of course, and sailors in period costume. There were exhibits of handcrafts in one large tent and entertainment in another large tent.
Thank heavens for those tents. They were the refuge when a sudden rain shower hit.

The powerful hand of a man who forges his own tools.

These are the magic feet of Aubrey Atwater, a self taught clog dancer. She is one half of the folk duo Atwater-Donnelly who sing traditional American and Celtic folk music. She also claims to be the only clog dancer in Rhode Island.
What a wonderful way to get out of the rain.
