Went to the boardwalk today and rented a two-person surrey bike. We took it up and down the boardwalk--not quite the whole length, because the bike is fairly heavy, there's no gearing, it's a lot of work to get it to go up a slope, and the seats weren't what you'd call "comfortable". But aside from that, it was fun. Nice clear day at the beach but not too hot, with lots of people out having a good time.

Just got Fading Glory, GMT's reprint of four Napoleonic 20 games from Victory Point Games. Included are Waterloo, Smolensk, Borodino, and Salamanca. I had a good time my first go at the Waterloo scenario, and I've signed up for Rising Glory, the next one in the series.

I happened to be looking out over the back deck and saw a bald eagle flying north along the river. He was moving at a pretty good clip; I saw a flash of white head and white tail and said "Hey! Eagle!" and he wasbehind the trees and out of sight.

We got a pair of blueberry bushes last winter, and we've just had our first blueberry harvest. Most of them are a paler blue than what you'd see in a store, but some of them are as deep and intense as you could ask for. I have no idea why the birds and squirrels haven't gotten them.
