Head of the Charles regatta, October 2006:

All that I know about rowing is that these people get up at wee hours of the morning to go out on the water in the chilly fall weather.  Always seemed crazy to me.  But what do I know?  I like to go fight rush hour traffic on two wheels.

Anyway, there has always been something elegant and maybe a bit romantic about this sport.  Ya gotta admire these people...  So I enjoy this autumn spectacle from the shore on my two wheels.

I love the Charles River.  I used to commute to work along its banks some years ago, and it is just great for enjoying the scenery while getting some exercise.  I regret that I don't get into the city often enough to enjoy it much these days.

On another note, I missed out on the record-setting jack-o-lantern festival put on by the Life Is Good folks.  I guess I should read the newspaper in the morning, not the evening...  Anyway, by the time I showed up the next day, all the gourds were sitting in dumpsters, waiting to be taken away to the compost heap.
