Flying Santa returned today and it was a wonderful visit for kids and adults alike.
Thanks go to the entire Flying Santa organization, to Scituate Police and Fire for their help, to Betty Kincaid and David Ball of the Cedar Point Association who arrange for the event on this end, and to the many children who remind us all every year what the close of the year might be if we could hold on to our imaginations and innocence.
The departure by helicopter was dramatic and something about which you can never get jaded.
This was also part of the morning. A paddle boarder ignored wind chill down in the 20's to take a ride out to the mouth of the harbor. Balance and grace and confidence on display in Scituate Harbor.
