Springtime Sock Burning

It's a welcome sign of spring...sort of a sailing Groundhog Day for east coast boaties...the annual Annapolis Sock Burning which took place tonight in the nearby Republic of Eastport. Thanks go to the Annapolis Maritime Museum for hosting this bit of ritual "Ode to the Equinox" pageantry. If the wind is right and they can smell fragrance de burnt sock across the water on the dock of the AYC then the racing season begins two weeks earlier...according to local lore ;-)
