Fairhaven Homecoming and Beach












Sue and I went to the Homecoming Fair, one of the many events in the small village of Fairhaven, Ma. I'm not a big fan of the fair, it's ok, but not something I go out of my way to attend. Sue loves the crafts, because they are really classy items. (Not the usual flee market stuff). The food is generally lousy and it is very congested which can get annoying.

Beach
An hour or so was more than enough time to browse the stands, meet a few old friends and have a quick snack. We decided to head to the ocean. The beach around here has a few connotations. We need to specify. West Island (the bay) East Beach (the harbor), West Beach (the cove) or Horseneck (the ocean).

There is a huge difference and we decided on Horseneck. It's at least a couple of miles long, and the surf can be heavy enough for some decent surfing. Sand dunes separate the water from the roads and parking lots and the beach go'ers have over the years developed a kind of segregation. We plant ourselves in the general population. As you walk toward Westport point, you pass the high school/college "sport" section. Lots of volleyball and soccer. Next is the gay area, followed by the "New York" section. (Out of state summer residents pay a hefty annual fee that is in excess of $1000. Seasonal pass for the general population area is $30. The last large section is the Westport residents area. Here a free town pass is required to use the parking lots. If your walking on biking...no charge.

The law in the State of Massachusetts states that all waterfront is public below the high tide mark. With that in mind, everyone mingles. The people who pay $1000 have to share the beach with those who pay $30 along with those who do not have to pay. But the thousand dollar section has a waiting list.

We stopped at the LBS Village Cycle, looking for a helmet. I am trying to find one that doesn't make the rider look like and ant, with that pointed back part. I have a 20 year old Schwinn helmet that I like because it's round. I can't find anything even remotely like it. Any how, the LBS is doing it's weekly Sunday morning ride and the owner promised something different. It's a secret but it did peak my interest.

I have been considering trying to ride with this group for a couple of years. Now that I know there are four distinct speed groups, I will definitely give it a go. Sue is going to pass on this to go to the Animal Rescue League to clean kennels and play with the dogs. Everyone has their calling.

  2. Hi there!
    I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
    I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
    Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

    for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
    I have been participating in one project for several years,
    and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

  5. To be a adroit benign being is to from a amiable of openness to the far-out, an gift to trusteeship undeterminable things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in uncommonly extreme circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly outstanding relating to the prerequisite of the honest passion: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a treasure, something kind of feeble, but whose very precise attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
