In honor of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the writing of "The Star Spangled Banner", OpSail2012CT brings 22 vessels into New London Harbor, and the city adds some local flavor with Sailfest and its fireworks over the Thames River.

Boats will begin assembling at 3pm Friday in Niantic Bay, where East Lyme officials have scheduled a street festival in downtown Niantic and a dinner at McCook Point Park for the crews.  

I'm happy to be included in the fun - I've been invited to be one of the featured Plein air artists along Main Street in Niantic this Friday afternoon, July 6th! 
Come by and see me, I'll be painting at Cafe Sol on Main St.

Check out for more info!

You may want to be at McCooks Beach on Friday afternoon to see the USS Carter Hall, a 610 ft. Navy dock ship (visualize landing hundreds of Marines via hovercraft) deliver it's captain on the beach in a big Hummer! The ships will be in Niantic Bay Friday evening until Saturday morning when they head over to New London for the Parade of Ships!
