A Madeline Island Fourth

An acquaintance said “You’ve got to see the Madeline Island Fourth of July Parade” and so we checked it out on Saturday. And he was right; it was the perfect blend of what passes for a patriotic gathering on the quirkiest of the Apostle Islands.

We declared the float with the Madeline Island Music Camp violinists, playing “Stars and Stripes Forever” to be the best in show.
