Herring Cove Sunset

Ahhh. It is nice to unwind with a beautiful sunset in order to put things into persepective. The Pinhead (Guffman) and I sat and watched. We thought about the stressed out Lehman Brothers Brokers, but only for a second. These shots are from my cell phone – not too great but definitely does the job.

My First Week in Ptown – Bring on da Bears

July 18, 2008

Bears gathered around a camp fire

First week I just gathered my thoughts and began to immerse myself into Ptown culture – which changes by the theme week. The week I arrived coincided with Bear Week. A week dedicated to the furry, chubby, masculine men who love to hug, cuddle and kiss each other. Next week is Family Week. In fact, the Norwegian Dawn is docked in Ptown harbor waiting to unload tons of children with their 2 mommies and 2 daddies in tow. I did not become a bear this past week, and I doubt I will become a parent this week.

Below are a couple of videos – one from Neil Thorton, a friend of mine and a bear, who let us know about this amazing bonfire on the beach a few nights ago. The sunset was amazing and his juggling skills kept us entertained after the sun went down.

We also saw some adorable seals during our bonfire on Race Point. Bears have nicknames for other type of guys who hang around bears – cubs, otters, etc. Seals are not officially a named species of bear friend. Perhaps that will change after our experience with them this week. Here is a video of them and their bobbing heads right off the coast.
