Maplewood and Little-League Baseball, New Jersey - 29th April 2006

At the end of nearly two months working in California, Nosher heads back to the UK with a stop-off at old school-chum Phil and his wife Lolly's pad in the attractive New Jersey town of Maplewood. Before we head off to the beach house on Fire Island, we manage to pack in a trip to Kai's Karate class, a session of Little League Baseball (an American institution, and another tick on Nosher's list of US icons to see or do) with a picnic and a play in the form of a contemporary interpretation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at The Papermill Theater.

next album: Phil and the Fair Harbor Fire Engine, Fire Island, New York State, US - 30th April 2006
previous album: San Diego Seven: The Desert and the Dunes, Arizona and California, US - 22nd April
