Okay, it has been a while.
But we have been enjoying family, friends, lobster, and a bit of touring.
First---continuing the week after Emilie's graduation was the party.
And the high school graduate of honor was Emilie, above, with her
new car. She is thrilled to have a vehicle for commuting to school and work.
Can you tell?

Entertainment was provided by Alison and Keith with their karaoke system
Definitely a hit of the afternoon.
Keith is always ready to act out the songs.
The smiley cousins.

Patty always has a great voice.
Singing " I'll Stand by You" to Emilie .
Mom and children have always been quite close.
Aunt of many talents, Alison made this beautiful crocheted blanket for Emilie.
The tent in the background sheltered some excellent home made foods.
Lucas had a great time
Even had an assist from another young guest.
Don't you agree!
Don't you agree!
What's Karaoke without a Disney song?
Madison, Rachel, Lucas, Alison, and Scott
Patty, Gary, and Emilie with , probably, Emilie's
favorite graduation gift.
Do you know how hard it is to get these people together???

Front row: Madison, Emilie, Lilly, Jan, and Lucas
We stayed for the party at Whispering Pines in Hope Valley, R.I.
This campground allowed tents as well as RVs which was great for Sean and Madison.
All that marathon running seems to be agreeing with Sean.
After the party, Jan and I headed down to Fisherman's Memorial State Park in
Narragansett, Rhode Island. Point Judith lighthouse is close by.
And ,of course, Iggy's Seafood which is now open in a new building.
The Coast Guard House Restaurant
This is on Ocean Road on Rhode Island Sound .
We went over three bridges.
The Verrazzano Bridge.
We would stop here after biking at Colt State Park which is right across the water.
Fried clams are still excellent!
A visit with friends Dave and Nancy.
Dave prepared fresh from the ocean lobster on the grill. Gourmet!
We also had a chance to have a great visit with friends Gail and Richard!
