I couldn’t have asked for a better more dedicated effort than the one put forth by our team. 35 quality posts in the First three days alone including the winning greasy pole walks, novena, procession, seine boats, Fiesta 5 K, faces in the crowd. Hell we had something like six different quality posts on Fiesta 5k alone.
Now I understand certain media outlets take heat for trying to stuff as much Fiesta content as they can into their pages but that’s the beauty of GMG. We don’t have no stinkin rules.
We don’t have to cover the puss.
We cover the good and we cover it to death.
FIESTA BABY! WE OWN THIS SPACE!
#BOOM! THAT JUST HAPPENED!
Great Job Team!
Filmed at Friday night’s formal opening ceremony. After shooting the greasy pole contest I raced back to my car, which was parked all the back to I4-C2, to lessen the load of tripod and video camera. I grabbed my still camera thinking I would only take snapshots. I wish I had kept the video camera with me, but attempted to shoot video with the Fujifilm x100. The x100 unfortunately does not have IS, or image stabilization, nonetheless the colors are good.

My little brother Owen Bryan, 11, made this Lego Greasy Pole and we thought you might want to share it on the blog. Here are a few pictures that we liked.

Lots of anglers are catching 6" to 8" squid off the inside edge of the Eastern Point Breakwater with Sabiki rigs.
Anyone have a good spicy recipe for what to do with the fresh catch?
By the way, now that the Audubon Society runs the lot at the breakwater, don’t forget that it costs $5.00 to park there for the day!
As for access, tell the guard at the gate by Niles Beach that you’re headed for the breakwater. There’s a public right of way along the AEPR (Association of Eastern Point Residents) private speed-bumped roads.
As for Niles Pond, it’s a Great Pond open to public use.
Far Out in the Harbor
Far out in the harbor in the pink dusk
of a late June day, lies a schooner fast
to her anchor beneath the first quarter moon.
The softness of the scene mesmerizes me
and I imagine I can hear the rigging softly
click and ring against the swaying masts.
I quietly breathe in time to the gently
breaking surf. The nearby sounds of the Fiesta
are dampened by my meditation;
I am drawn into the temple of the harbor.
