Provincetown Bear Week 2009 Recap
And....we're home. On the ground and home in Portland. The big load of laundry has been done. And we've been regrouping and resting this afternoon. We've been up since 1am our time and will, no doubt, be ready for bed this evening. Bear Week in Provincetown, Massachusetts, was, to say the least, an eye candy orgasmic feast. I had a bit of skepticism about how I would fit into a Bear crowd....not being one myself. But my doubts were soon allayed. I met so many fantastic people and drank so much beer. We met every afternoon at 4pm for the daily Tea Dance.....which was nothing more than drinking, dancing, chatting, staring, and making lewd comments about everyone around us. There was no shortage of fun. All of my pictures are here. It was an interesting week in that I was able to stand back and really get a good look at everyone around me....because, in all seriousness, very few people were looking at me....I have minimal chest hair (except for the stray gray ones around my nipples). And my little teeny tiny baby arms couldn't begin to stand up to the giant muscle bears all around me. So, I watched, chatted, looked, and ogled. No complaints. Our friends in Albany were the greatest hosts ever complete with making sure we had clean sheets, lots of food, and a beautiful pool to relax by (and shoot naked pictures around)....there were ten of us in the house along with a zillion other friends and friends of friends. And last night, a couple of new friends in Albany were kind enough to host a beauty of a BBQ in their garden. Delicious food, lovely new acquaintances, and a nice summertime vacation. Oh, and did I mention a whale watching cruise wherein we saw more than a dozen of the ocean's finest. But, alas, we're home. And happy. Now, back to work......and back to the gym. So that next year I can be the Bear Week poster boy.
