Last night, we took our newbie Erieites (spelling?) to Presque Isle for the first Wednesday of the Sunset music series. Future Dr. Jennings parked us a good mile away from the actual concert but hey! Who doesn't like a good walk? (He knew there were closer spots- he just wanted to make sure that we complied with the government recommendation for 30 minutes of exercise a day, right, Adam?)
The concert was fun. There were loads of people at the beach spread out all along the sand on their beach towels and lawn chairs. The band (Duke Sherman blues band) was really good. The peoplewatching at these events is spectacular. (As in watching people at these events is fun. Not as in the actual people who are watching this event were fantastic. Although they are, I'm sure.)
First off, this kid in front of us dug the most gigantic hole that I've ever seen dug at the beach. Apparently blues music makes him want to be in China?
And, oddly enough, the sun really does set during the Sunset Music Series.
Okay, enough sunset pictures. These are our people. The newbie Erie folks. Brooke & Free.
We were kind of far back but you could still hear the music really well. Sadly, because of our proximity, Freeland's goal of ending up naked on the stage by the end of the night was not met. He was just kidding... we think.
Me & my absurd glasses with my wonderful hubster.
I also have a picture of the most sunburned person ever but I need photoshop so that I can blur out faces. Otherwise, I feel kind of bad posting a picture of severely sunburned stranger. He was in need of some serious Aloe.
All in all, a great night. There are still 5 Wednesday nights left in the music series so head on out if you're so inclined. There are lots of families and some people even bring their dogs (on leashes, of course). So, maybe I'll see you at the next one!
