Freedom on Frenchman Bay

Moored Boats on Frenchman BayHappy Independence Day from Frenchman Bay. Moored boats bob near a four-masted schooner, while orange ferries transport passengers back and forth from a mega cruise ship that’s hanging out near the Porcupine Islands. Along the Shore Path, a father asks his teenage daughter to stop and smell the roses, and she puts her phone in her pocket and obliges, smiling into their warm fragrance.
