Fun at Betterton at the Appreciation Day Parade

It was a beautiful August Day for Betterton Appreciation Day. One couldn’t ordered a nicer one. Temperatures was near 80 with low humidity. If there was a bad part, it was that there was a light wind blowing off the bay. But it made for beautiful white caps on the water.
