|The summer residents have returned to Campobello. Like every year, they come from Florida, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Maine, New Hampshire, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, North-and South Carolina, Indiana, California. We don’t see license plates from the Midwest-States. Is it because they are all farmers and tied to their homes? Maybe. |

They live on Campobello for up to 6 months before they close up their summer homes and move back to their home states.
Then life is falling back into this quiet mode where you never see your neighbours other than when they are out shoveling snow.
In a few days we have summer solstice and that makes me think of the many summer solstices we had in Norway, when it never got dark at night. Unfortunately, many years it was foggy, wet and even raining at summer solstice. In Norway it is a custom to lit a solstice fire and gather around it. Rarely, we could do that where we lived in our coastal area. The Norwegian coastal mountain range is holding up all the dark clouds and some years it is raining for weeks without stopping. Much nicer out here in eastern Canada. No mountains here and much nicer weather.
Yesterday we spent another nice evening at Jocie’s Porch.
Again we were amazed what musical talents are around.
The performer’s age range from 8 to 80 years and they can do just about anything. Great place to meet new and old friends as well.
On June 26 the 4th International Marathon is held between Lubec and Campobello. 800 runners from many countries have registered. Accommodations are booked out in the entire region. And next month we are celebrating Canada Day on July 1, Independence Day on July 4, and FOG FEST from July 27- July 31. Lots of activities to organize for a smallest and youngest community in Canada.
