my pedro town had the good fortune to both host the tall ships festival and receive a visit from florentijn hofman‘s sixtyone foot tall “rubber duck” which I got to get a shot of from skipper jeff’s (you can read about the biggest hellride of his life here) “pride of cucamonga” yesterday in the main channel near berth ninetyone while I was doing an edition of the watt from pedro show (fourth one from his boat this summer!), right in front of us is the schooner “amazing grace” which sailed up from san diego to be part of the festival. behind in green is some of the vincent thomas bridge.
also spotted near the duck, a wienermobile! last time I saw one was when I came to california from virginia and we got a visit at the lochmann farms dairy that was next to the navy housing I had moved to. I still got the wiener whistle the driverman gave me!
using one end hole to blow in, you can use the other two w/your fingers to blow that company’s tune! maybe this was my first cover?
