Patriots Training Camp 2007

We made our annual trip to the New England Patriots Training Camp.

A few observations:
  • Record crowds on hand every day of camp.
  • Randy Moss is really smooth. He can catch the ball in stride better than anyone I've ever seen.
  • Adalius Thomas is really big for a linebacker. He was hanging out with Tedi Bruschi - hopefully absorbing the details of the Pats defense.
  • The crowd cheers for everything. At one point, the offense had to do a penalty lap around the field for jumping offsides. They got a wild round of applause from the crowd!
  • One fan had a Lonnie Paxton jersey on and a sign that read "I just want a hug, Lonnie!" I had never seen a Paxton jersey before.

Vacation in Maine

(Nubble Light - York, ME)

We took our vacation over the July 4th holiday week.

We stayed in York, Maine, right across from Long Sands.

It was a terrific, relaxing week - and I really needed the time off.
