I’m out on the veranda. Yes the western (lagoon) facing one. It’s just past 01.00 hours. I’ve got no mug of black coffee with me – come on , it would keep me awake for hours- but I do have the iPad with me.
Regular readers are now starting to think thworld has turned upside down. I mean he (that’s me) always gets up early. And that’s the time of the day that he writes about. Why’s he writing his blog at 1 pm (remember you’re thinking this, not me. If it had been me I’d have said 01.00 hours).
Well I’m writing it now because I’ve got just back from attending the 2014 San Pedro Lobsterfest Block Party and, because I had a particularly good time and a fair amount to drink, I still feel wide awake. So I thought why not knock out an edition now.
Now if I were erudite – and I’m not- and had the energy – which I don’t – I’d give a couple of paragraphs to how Lobstersfest started in 2008 (or was it 2007 ?) . But I won’t. I mean its late and I need to go to bed. If not how can I be expected to be out here ( on the western veranda) at 04.00 hours (it’s me now so it’s the 24 hour clock).
Rose and I were here for the first Lobsterfest (2007 or 2008) and since then each one has got bigger and better than the one before . And this year’s Block Party to bring the event to a culmination was the best so far.
Now I could sit out here ( that’s on my western veranda) padding out a few paragraphs but in all honesty it’s been a long day and I think I really should go to bed . So I’ll just leave with a few photographs that I took.
Stands being set up around 13.00 hours.
Rose and I got to Central Park (that’s where it’s held) around 19.00 hours and it was in full swing.
There was, obviously, lobster around
And music too.
And loads of people enjoying themselves.
Plus Super G.
I wish that I could sit out here a bit longer and wax lyrical about the wonders of Lobsterfest but in all honesty I’m not going to. No for me its time to go now. To bed. Goodnight.
The headline for today’s edition is based on the single released in 1965 by The Moody Blues which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart and number ten in the US Billboard Hot 100.
