Family Reunion

A little fog and rain couldn't put a damper on the fun this past weekend as three families from New Jersey drove up to Maine to join us at the Bluff House Inn. After everyone had arrived and were settled in their rooms, we had a big barbeque with ribs, brochettes, chicken, pulled pork, and salads to go with them. Saturday morning dawned rainy and foggy - but the bravest family members went out on the lobster boat to see how they are caught. They arrived back at the Inn, soaked, but in good spirits! Then we all headed across the road and down a very muddy, dirt road, to DD's lake house for lunch, fishing, boating, waverunning, and what we did most of all - sitting around chatting. And who cares if it's raining - you get wet in the water anyway, don't you? Then back to the Inn for a lobster feast - way more lobsters than even this large group could eat. Sunday morning - and here comes the sun! Plans for leaving early to head back to NJ were cancelled as everyone went back out to the lake for more fun - this time in the sun. There were floatplane rides for everyone, more fishing, boating, waterskiing, tubing, swimming, and eating of course.

Here are a few pictures. There are more on Facebook (where I am Jane Donnelly Vdoviak).
