I love to watch the little kids when they discover the koi “pond” in front of the Ship’s Lantern on Centre Street.  They get so excited that I’ve seen a few of them almost take a header straight into the moat.  And, if truth be told, lots of the parents are pretty excited to see these big, friendly fish up so close too.  One of the joys of being in a small town is that there are ample opportunities like this to remain innocent just a little bit longer.
