I think I saw Noah's ark on Route 3 today - or maybe it was an 18 wheeler.

The landscape is very different in Chester this week - there's more water than land.

Even the drive through has a marine element.

Tonight , Wednesday, there is a tennis tournament at the Chester Tennis Club at 6 pm with four South Shore clubs participating. It's not Wimbledon, but you don't have to get on a plane to see it. Free admission.

Get fired up at the Rope Loft this weekend ! 🔥 Buy a Caesar when you visit and fill out a ballot for a chance to win a Fire Pit from Mott’s Clamato. Double up for double entry. Contest ends Monday, July 31st.
