They say when it’s hot out, you really should stay inside and stay cool. Avoid exercise. But, we have a very long winter here in NH. So staying inside during the summer is just not a possibility.
On Saturday, J & I biked the city streets into downtown Concord for Market Days. The 3-day event closes Main Street and has a bunch of vendors selling and giving things away. It’s a very cool (not temperature-wise) event. Setting up for Market Days was my volunteer gig on Thursday, actually. We walked around, watched the fire department beat the police department in dodge ball and of course we won something. The prize tally is not done yet, but so far, I won a 4-week subscription to The Concord Monitor! We read the newspaper online all the time, but it will be a treat to have it in hand.That evening, we went to Red Arrow Diner (rated top 10 in the US!) and to see a Fisher Cats (minor league) baseball game with our friends in NH (we actually have friends now). J and Second Nature (he was a thru-hiker in 1998) are both rec directors and I swear his wife is my long-lost soul sister! Anyways, J worked his magic and got us sweet seats behind home plate and VIP parking. Don’t ask. He is just amazing when it comes to scoring deals. The Fisher Cats lost, but I can’t say I was paying much attention to the game anyways! And, there was a sweet fireworks show after the game, so that was a bonus!
