Classic Down East Labor Day cookout with all the fixin's at Goomp's Camelot-by-the-Sea yesterday. Rib eyes, brats, dogs, potato salad, corn on the cob, Eddie's beans, mighty Caesar. Susie's blueberry pie with pluperfect crust, Ellen's brownies with ice cream for dessert. An after-lunch walk down to Pebble Beach. Lots of forestrial devastation from the wrath of Earl just last week and a nor'easter that had taken out Goomp's power for days a couple of months before.
Matthew back east from Iowa on Sabbatical with the Divine Miss Penny (above) in tow. The sweet little pup broke loose from her tether and unwittingly terrorized/fascinated the feline community in residence. Tiny was not amused.
A revelation: There is life outside of social networking. Renewing old bonds, reminiscing about the good times of our shared salad days and sharing dreams of adventures to come.
