Here and there in the North Shore

My cyber-presence will most likely be minimal this weekend, as the band (and I with it) is in Wakefield, Massachusetts, taking part in an outdoor music festival organized by Christ the King church.

At the risk of turning this blog post in a travel brochure circa 1990, here are a couple pictures of where we’ll be playing. If you look at the bottom center of the lake, there’s a gray stone church building with either…a flock of white birds above it or some sort of constellation-y statue. It’s probably a flock of birds. Anywho, if you look at the 2 field areas to the right of that church–that’s where we’ll be!

Now, to take you back to perhaps the late ’80’s, direct your gaze to this picture:

In spite of its dubious quality, I’m delighted that this image was found in the google search as this is precisely the gazebo/bandstand we’ll be playing in this afternoon! Though it may look munchkin like from this picture, I assure you it is not.

Ben and I were welcomed into the home of a warm, playful woman named Cheryl, who fed us an equally warm meal last night and shared strories  who’s feeding us pancakes shortly, which means this post has about a minute left in its creation. 🙂

Tomorrow, we’ll be reuniting with the folks at Dane Street Church in Beverly. I’m glad we’ll get to see THIS guy again and meet his lovely new wife:

[ Mac and his lovely wife Britney ]

Exciting! We love Mac.

End note: I’m actually posting this much past breakfast, as consistent internet connection was lacking. Since then, we met up at the park, helped set up a number of tents, coordinated sound gear, and have wandered bit in downtown Wakefield for some WiFi. Thoroughly enjoying the muted light, cool air, and quiet of Lucius Beebe memorial library (me? enjoy a library? pfff.)–it was built in 1922 in honor of a man and wife, built by their children with land donated by the town. Neato.

Before I go, two recipes I want to try soon, for snack-y type items:


Bread and Butter Pickles
