Lobster at the IP Rendezvous Dinner

The Maine Island Packet (IP) Rendezvous is a wonderful event held in one of the best towns in America, Boothbay Harbor. The IP dealer, Norm Pierce and his gracious wife, Mary, plan and organize the three day event! They schedule the restaurants for multiple meals, they organize the speakers and outline the seminars, they write supporting documents and helpful handouts, share information about their town, and they accept your mail, UPS, and FedEx packages, all to support the Island Packet Fleet. This is our second time to attend this bi-annual event and Norm said there will be another one in two years, so make plans now to COME ON UP by boat or by car!

I have taken hundreds of photos of the event and I have posted 60 photos on our Island Packet Yacht Owner’s Web site. Here is a link to the direct photo albums…

How beautiful, notice the tide is down, 8-10 foot drop!

No picture can show the true beauty, this is the best I can do….
