On Wednesday evening, I went on a night hike up Blue Hill to see if I could view comet Pan-Starrs. My Saturday hike there had proven fruitless, but this time around I was armed with more information.
Even so, I wasn’t able to actually see the comet; I had to locate it with the camera, which has the advantage of being able to take long exposures.
Here are a couple photos from that evening:

Jen and Jeremy had a beautiful wedding on Grand Island overlooking the Niagara River. Most of my photos are shown here or on the following pages.

In between the wedding ceremony and the reception we had a couple hours to burn, so we headed up to Niagara Falls to see the spectacle and have a (not-so-) quick snack.

…if you look closely, you can barely see the boat in the panoramic picture above. Gives you a sense of the scale of the place!!!
Thanks to Tara and her family for hosting and having us spend the night.
Congrats Tara and Sam!
Thanks to Joe Lally, we got tickets for a Sox game. Unfortunately, it was rained out and then rescheduled for the following day. It was still raining, just not as hard, but they played anyway. Okay, well, the Sox didn’t do all that much playing, so they lost 0-14. Ouch!
Me, Charles and Kirk.
The Blue Hills Cycling Club and the Milton Rotary Club joined to put on the Blue Hills Classic Bike Race here in Milton this year.
In previous years, the race was held on a closed loop near Cunningham Park in East Milton, but this year it was moved down to the Blue Hills Reservation, where it was a little out-of-the-way. Registration was through Bikereg.com, and the field was larger than ever.
I would have liked to have participated, but I’m not in racing shape and I was sick. So I stood around and took photos and video, and chatted with the good folks from
Dave’s Bike Infirmary.
We held a used bike sale at Cunningham Park to raise money for projects like improving a bike path and adding signage around town. More details online at bikemilton.org. Leftover bikes were donated to BikesNotBombs.org for use by people overseas.
