September. The beginning of the Fall season has arrived. The Labor Day Weekend is Sept 4th, 5th and 6th and marks the official end of summer for those of us in North America however, the First Day of Fall is not until the 22nd. Howbeit, September has much to celebrate and be mindful of.  September has a lot of meaningful days such as Rosh Hashanah beginning on the 6th which is the Jewish New Year. September 2nd is VJ Day celebrating the Victory over Japan and the end of WWII. September 17th is Constitution Day, and there are several others, too many to list here.

The weather is not as hot and more enjoyable but the seasonal changes come at a price. Hurricane season reaches it's peak and that can be dangerous, so one should to keep a "weather eye" and pay attention to your local forecast. We have had several named storms in the Atlantic already. That is why FOUR of our featured items below are professional weather forecasting instruments. Also, beside Labor Day there is one event in history which occurred in September that many may not be aware of.  One very MAJOR thing that happened was the sailing of the Mayflower from Portsmouth England on September 16, 1620. That event is marked as Mayflower Day. If that ship had not sailed or had not made it to what is now Plymouth, MA, we may never have had the United States of America as we know it, so we have highlighted our own Mayflower ship model in remembrance of that event.

Finally, there is the annual remembrance of 9/11 and the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Our way of remembering these events is by offering our customers a 20% Discount on every item in our online store. This way you can have something to remember these events and save some money in the process.

Now, there are still many warm and even hot days and nights ahead so one should get outside and enjoy life in this very pleasant season.  Get out on the water if you can or to the beach, or out where the water turns deep blue, or at home on your deck. The history and heritage of this country started with nautical. With ships and explorers and fishermen and wind and sail. Keep that with you and share it with your children. Just please remember, always be careful so that you remain safe to enjoy the season with friends and family no matter where you are. Remember the rules of this present pandemic and keep safe distance from strangers or those who don't live with you and for goodness sake wear your face mask where mandated. Keep yourself and family safe at ALL costs and we shall see you next month.

Fair winds and following seas.
