Back at the Aerie

Terry and I had a wonderful time in West Wareham, MA.

Bruce and Sue opened their trailer to serve as a guest house and we were made to feel right at home.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover we weren't the only couple from the Alaskan Adventure to be invited to the family clambake. Robert and Nancy from Tennessee pulled into the driveway with their camper in tow as we were unpacking our vehicle Friday afternoon.

That evening we found that this would be one heck of a food weekend! It started with Cornish game hens on the grill with baked potatoes and baked onions with a rhubarb compote topped with vanilla ice cream for desert.

After dinner we sat around the campfire with some adult beverages and caught up on the past year. Robert and Nancy had been down in Louisiana for the Mardi Gras gathering and Bruce and Sue had had a couple of folks drop by as they visited nearby Cape Cod.


As soon as I finish editing the rest of my photos, I'll be posting more. Suffice to say that Saturday saw the arrival of some of Bruce and Sue's family and early preparation for Sunday's clambake. Saturday also ended with one huge pizza party under the pines in the back yard, accompanied by plenty of adult beverages and another campfire.
