Mark Mulligan came to Peterborough Ontario from San Carlos Mexico

Where are we today ?
      Another perfect day here in cottage country, just enjoying the sunshine and wonderful temperatures. A few walkabouts the campground and read for a while in the shade.
      This afternoon we are heading into Peterborough to finally meet in person Mark Mulligan a Musician who lives in San Carlos Mexico. We first heard about him when we were there in December 2009, and again in February 2010 when we stopped in San Carlos again for a while. Missed him both times. I have been following his website and tours since 2009. Find out he is playing here in Peterborough today, Sunday afternoon from 3 until 6 pm at the Holiday Inn Gazebo on the Water.  
        Well guess what?  Gotta go.  He is playing along with Kelly McGuire, and Sunny James White. All three of them got their inspiration from Jimmy Buffet and play in his style. All great music with wonderful songs, telling a story with music and words you can understand Margaritaville style.
        We headed out about 1:45 for the 30 minute drive there. To be in time for the 3 pm show. We met Mark Marler that has arranged for these guys to come to Ontario,(3rd year in a row now).
This is the Patio overlooking the river
we got a front row Table with shade 
introducing the band
       Two short videos of their music both under 30 seconds, if you care to listen and watch. Not great but the best I could do with the equipment I have. You get the idea.
Song below is "Gonna buy me a bar in Mexico"

This song below is "Blame it on Buffet"

      We thoroughly enjoyed almost 4 hours of fun here in the shade on the waterfront patio, with great music and fun interaction with these songwriters and singers. Mark is off to play in Albuquerque New Mexico and meet up with his family this Tuesday.
     A friend of our Harry Hicks who we met years ago in the Imperial Sand Dunes (California) told us about Mark Mulligan and so glad he did. We had a fun afternoon.
6 pm time to head on home now.
        Now still a wonderful warm day, so we can relax outside and enjoy our books for a while. No supper tonight but really need to indulge in one of these gooey butter tarts, from Betty's we picked up at market yesterday. Thats all we need for tonights supper.
       We had a great day hope you did too. Thanks for stopping by again.
