With sunblock and water bottles at the ready, RH does "Wheat Sheaf."

The appropriately titled "Seaside Shuffle," done for four, with music by Jeff Bigler and Jeremy Kessler.

MOTley Morris, our border morris "affiliate," did "The Drunken Idiot" to vocal accompaniment -- reading the lyrics not from broadsheet or parchment, but PDAs. Oral tradition, digital traditions, it's all good.

Afterwards, we adjourned to Salem Beerworks restaurant, where Shalyn (right) and her friend made inventive use of spoons for karaoke and, well, other things, much to the amusement of Jeff's daughter Margaret.
