Yes, this is me as a clam. Wendy had to beg for the picture, but I'm a nice guy so I obliged.
Wendy's note: Yeah, he obliged after I said please about 472 times. Such a nice guy!
These were taken at "Shaw's Fish and Lobster Wharf", which is a really good seafood restaurant in Bristol. We came here last year and it made it on the list of places we wanted to go back to. It was not totally warm, but we decided to tough it out on the dock anyway.
We also drove by Bath Iron Works and saw inside the huge building where they build ships. There were signs that you couldn't take pictures, but it was pretty interesting to see.
Tonight we attended our third and final open mic night at Ebenezer's. We had the largest group of people yet - Chip, John, Dee, Di, Mark, Rob, Rob's niece, me, Chelsea and Joel. Chip and John took the night off from singing but there was still plenty of good talent, and it gave them a chance to relax and have a few drinks without worrying about how it would affect their performance. In fact, Chip and John and I had a B-52 toast to the class of '85! The three of us were the ones from '85 in our group, then there were Mark and Allison from the class of '83. There were others over the years but the five of us were especially tight when Allison and I first moved to Mt. Ararat high school. It was one of the prominent periods in my youth, and having four out of five of us there these past few weeks was very special for me., in fact it was one of the highlights of the trip.
Since the guys didn't perform this week and I didn't post any video from last week, I will include a couple of my favorite songs from last week here.
