Head of the Charles

It wasn't exactly a crisp fall day yesterday for the Head of the Charles rowing regatta. With temperatures around 70 degrees, the water itself may have felt good. By 11 AM the river banks were pretty crowded, no doubt due to the weather. It was the biggest crowd I've seen in a decade of going to the regatta.

The promotional booths on the river banks near Harvard Square are always fun to check out and get some free stuff. This year, some of these booths were pretty tripped out. Best Buy had a bunch of televisions to browse. Gillette was giving people free shaves in a tent with barber chairs. Had the feel of some bad episode of The Apprentice. (By the way, this celebrity version of The Apprentice is just a joke, right?)

Great day to try and give the new camera a spin at the races. No crashes at the Eliot or Weeks bridges to chronicle this year but still some good shots. I posted them here on Flickr.
