It was a bit over a mile to the beach and I was loaded like a pack mule. The video doesn’t show the second chair strapped to my rear bike rack and the full pannier. Sue carried the cooler on her bike and everything worked out fine.
I had made arrangements with a couple of my musician friends to meet at the Friday night concert on New Bedford’s (MA) Pier 3. The band started out pretty good but soon lost it’s mojo and eventually lost the crowd. There is a lot to be said about playing to your audience which the band did early in the first set and they had everyone tapping their feet and beginning to move to the music. Playing the second set they lost us with some 80’s music witch they didn’t play well andthat’s when the line at the beer vendor got very long with the audience trying to salvage their Friday night out.
