I watched intensely as the two tugs escorted the Training Vessel, “State of Maine” into the harbor at
Castine, Maine upon it’s return cruise to many European countries. The harbor was packed with newsmen, friends, and relatives of the crew members, so I shot this photo from the back yard of our little chapel just down the street from the maddening crowd. They fired cannons from the very old historical fort at the entrance to the harbor, the shots of which echoed throughout the entire peninsula. What a lovely reception it was!
