What a delight! As we were visiting the Hayes Presidential Site we saw preparations for a concert on the lawn. Although it took a bit to overcome inertia and to leave our comfy little T@B and travel back into Fremont this evening, we’re glad we did. The North Coast Big Band concert was the final installment of the summer series, Verandah Concerts. The free concert and ice cream social was sponsored by the local credit union and was attended by a crowd big enough to be fun but small enough to be comfortable. We loved the toe tapping music and even got up to dance a few measures in the grass. It felt like a Charles Kuralt moment!

Magerøya Island

Magerøya Island

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.
