On Saturday evening, the weather was perfect for a cocktail hour on the dock and to grill dinner at camp. And it was nice to have some guests join us in our cove.
Here is a story from Sunday's Outdoors section in the Portland Press-Herald discusses Kezar Lake's Upper Bay. Click the link here: "Canoeing in Maine: There are few places that match the beauty of Kezar Lake".
Three years ago, Michael Perry wrote an article for the Press-Herald on Kezar Lake's Lower Bay. Here's a link to the article.
Thanks to Tom Delano, the O's game against the Red Sox was on my calendar for several months. Who knew that when the plans were made early in the season that both teams would be in a strong position to win the AL East. Wade Miley was scheduled to pitch for the O's and based on his recent performances since he joined the team, I wasn't too optimistic of a victory but I wasn't prepared for the bashing that Red Sox gave them. It isn't often that you see a team score at least one run in every inning.
But the weather was perfect, the seats were great and the beer, of course, was expensive. The past two nights brought a little satisfaction with the Orioles winning both games including a 1-0 pitching gem. That's a score you don't see very often in the AL East.
Not many games left to the regular season. Boston travels to Camden Yards next week for a four-game set and that should provide some very exciting baseball. In the meantime, I will just enjoy my cold six-pack delivered by Mr. Bliss.
The 'Sweet Kids Corn' is getting ready for the season. The new stand debuts attractive and colorful signs, is painted, is in place and is ready to be filled with delicious ears.
Now, it won't be long before people stop at the stand to bring home a dozen ears or so. Be sure to keep an eye out for the cars lined up across from Lake Kezar Country Club. As it is an honor system, remember to bring cash with you and pay for the proper number of ears!
Congratulations go to not only Silas Eastman (overall winner with a time of 15:50) and Christie Foster (top female with a time of 18:08) but to the entire group of 149 finishers who made it to the finish line in very humid conditions. Plus, a big thank you to all of our volunteers monitoring traffic, registering runners, providing water and snacks and keeping the finish line moving!
Here are the results:
