Week 33 – Brian Weeks

Posted: November 13, 2011 in Brian Weeks, Week 33

Something I always talk about but never have done until this past Sunday… When I’m visiting my hometown, I always wanted to get up early, go get a cup of coffee, and go to Center Harbor Beach and enjoy the morning.  Something has always prevented me from doing that, but I was bound and determined to make it happen this time.  I took advantage of waking up very early from the time change, and took a ride down…

I spent a lot of time at the beach as a kid, the memories come crashing back like the waves of a passing motor boat when I turn down Lake Street. (I am 34 years old and just noticed that street actually has a name. I always thought it was just ‘that street that goes down to the beach, right before Heath’s.’)

For those that do not know me well, it would be meaningless for me to recount tales of tripping over my own feet and losing a large Tupperware cup of pilfered booze to the sand, or “relocating” the lifeguard stand underneath the raft in the middle of the swimming area. (It was discovered about a week later. I was planning to go back and get it the next night, but by then local media had begun reporting on it, and CHPD was out in full force. Had I actually gone back like I had planned, there never would have been a need for the town to buy a new one. It would have dried right out in a few days.)

Adolescent discretions aside, I spent the better part of 25 summers at that specific beach. A quick walk or bike ride would transport me to my New Hampshire version of the Riviera.

I took some photos to capture the beautiful morning. I hope you enjoy them.

    Great photos and even better memories. As far as the lifeguard chair is concerned, I plead the Fifth.
