Christmas Is In The Air

I’ve seen some interesting things in my life but I’ve never seen a town as enthusiastic about things as Rockland is. I’ve figured out the town’s two main loves: Lobster and the Coast Guard.

The town’s love for lobster runs deep. So deep in fact that the town builds a Lobster Trap Christmas Tree. That’s right. An entire 40+ Ft Christmas Tree of lobster traps. Our station got to volunteer to help build it.

That’s me in the orange. I actually got up there and was helping to build this thing

From the inside looking up. The tree was about halfway up

Even E got in on the action. One of his rare days off and he came out to help us ♥

E, channeling his inner climber again

 

The Lobster is on the top and the tree is complete. (This pic was not photo-shopped. I managed to catch a precip ring at the perfect time)

E’s parentals and my parentals got to see the love of Lobster and the Coast Guard first hand when the Coast Guard (aka my station) brought Santa to Rockland, kicking off the Christmas season.

 

And the festivities for the weekend concluded with the lighting of the Lobster Trap Tree which marks the official start to the Christmas Season in Rockland.
