Went to the ‘Bay‘, which is about 10-minutes from our house, to listen to the band playing from the bandstand in the water. Beautiful evening, albeit a tad temperature-challenged for what was the first day of Summer 2019. The band had not thought about setting up some wireless speakers on shore. So, they didn’t sound great. But, a few nice boats cruising around and the light was good. So, I snapped a few. Wanted to share. Enjoy.

Concord Market Days 2019 — Friday, June 21.

Check this post from yesterday.



For the last few years we have made a point of not missing Concord’s vibrant ‘Market Days‘. So, 2019, was not going to be an exception. We had to be in Concord anyway (for I to pick-up some new gas permeable contact lenses) and we knew beforehand that the weather (unlike the previous day) was going to be amenable. And that was indeed the case.

We got there around 2:40pm. Parking was NOT an issue. We were able to park, at a meter, on South Main street just yards from the start of the blocked off section. That was good. There was no rain. Some dark clouds on and off. But, also some sun.

Met some great artists. That is always the bonus.

Everybody is so friendly and after the soaking they had on Thursday happy that the rain had been replaced by crowds. I hope they all did well. Not sure why we need 5 or 6 separate large tents all selling the same ‘South American’ artifacts. None of them are local. We did buy some stuff from one of them and I had a brief chat with the proprietor. He is from New York and drove up for this. He claims he also does Sandwich Fair. Not sure that they are all related but to I it would make sense just to have two tents. But, c’est la vie.

If you can please do try to make it.

Concord is vibrant. They really make an effort. Thank you.

This was at Concord Market Days yesterday. Happened to see it and was thrilled that my Canon EOS RP, with the 28-300mm Tamron all-in-one zoom, was fast enough to let me snap two pictures — because it was floating fast and furious.

Yes, it reminded me of the plastic bag scene in ‘American Beauty‘ (1999).

Mountain Lions In New Hampshire — Another New Spate Of Recent Sightings.

Check out my post from 2013. Click image to access post.

There have been sightings in New Hampshire for years. But, we do not have any good credible pictures — which seems strange with all the trail cameras that folks have set up and the now ubiquitous phone/cameras that everybody (bar I) carry.

In 2013 there was talk that a mountain lion could be roaming OUR neighborhood. I myself had seen something BIG cross the road — albeit from a distance. Check out this post.

There is nothing to say that mountain lions have not come back to New Hampshire. They used to be here and they can thrive in NH again as long as they do not get hunted into extinction again.

Interesting.

Oh, for that one definitive photo.

Flowers & Flora In and Around Our House — June 14, 2019.

This is not comprehensive or even representative. I did NOT set out to take pictures of flowers today. To be honest I was in a rush. I was snapping away at random. It was only when I uploaded the pictures that I realized that I had quite a few in the ‘flowers & fauna’ category. So, decided to do a quick post so I could share them with you. Nothing special here and I will reiterate that I was rushed. SMILE.
