Here’s all you need to see from last week’s labor day parade.  the MHS marching band, followed by Scott Brown, followed by the music association float (with Chloe riding on the back).  I left the Scott Brown part in just to hear his fellow marchers exhort the spectators into cheering for him.  I missed getting the much larger Warren contingent on the video, but they didn’t have to beg anybody.

Monomoy boat ride

Sep 8, 2012

Finally uploaded the video from our boat trip out of Harwich to Monomoy island to see the seals (no sharks).  Beautiful day to be out on the water, it was our last full day on the cape, and before we were even half way through the trip Chloe was asking to take another boat ride, and then go kayaking.  Instead we went to the beach.

Harwichport harbor is a man-made port that has only been there since I think the 70’s.  On the way back, after the seals and the lighthouse, you see some shots of the south-facing beaches of Chatham, the last one is Cockle Cove beach, which was just down the road from where we were staying.  The last shots are of Wychmere Harbor.

I remember watching this at a museum, probably MS&I in Chicago, when I was a kid.  Came across it again just this week in an online MIT physics lecutre.  Still cool after all these  years.

After 30 years of trying, Beth finally got empanelled on a jury last Thursday, and it turned out to be a drug trafficking case that lasted through today.  A couple of jurors were holding out that in spite of the lack of evidence he was a drug dealer anyway and should be locked up, but in the end they found him not guilty.  Beth had to dutifully get up at 5am to get ready and get up to Woburn by 8:30 with all the back to school traffic (and pouring rain this morning), but she made it.  Meanwhile, I haven’t been called for jury duty for 20 years!

Chloe helped build and then rode on the Tri-M float in yesterday’s parade, and look, they made a new friend!  Beth only got to shake her hand.
