Deal Island Parade

Thought I would share a few photos I took at the Deal Island parade two weeks ago. Deal Island is a working watermen's town full of a great bunch of people. Now this is a real "Americana" parade.









This is Daddy Art Daniels, the oldest working skipjack captain around.















A big "Thanks" goes out to this lady whose name I can not remember. I know the dog is named Bambi. I had two assignments to cover on this day. To make matters worse, they both occurred at the same time, and they were both 40 minutes apart.

I forgot there was only one way in and out of Deal Island, so I had to park my car where the parade turned into the marina, and wait for it to reach the area. I was running up and down the road trying to get what I could. If I had been on the other side, where I had wanted to be, I would never have made it back to Crisfield. So thanks for letting me park in your yard.
