What a delightful way to spend a summer’s Saturday evening. We went to the ballgame. We enjoyed delightful weather while watching the home team hosting the Stockton Ports from the general admission bleachers in right field. It was fun to be among young families, listening to parents teaching their children how to understand the great American game of baseball, watching antics of the mascot and the crazy extras like the tennis ball toss or the little kids on the field singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” Of course the ballpark treats like hotdogs and popcorn were great and because we were in the Southwest we got to savor that wonderful cinnamon laden fried treat, the churro! All of this topped off by the best fireworks display we’ve seen in years. By the way the home team did lose, but not without some incredible bottom of the ninth excitement. Yes, they were trailing by one point and the bases were loaded. Three balls, two strikes, two out, and…just like mighty Casey, he struck out.

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
