Although rain delayed it for a day -- the first rain in 6 months! --
about half our guests were still able to come to our end-of-summer
party at the cottage, Summer's Toast.
We set up a bar on the dock, and since it was there
before anyone arrived, we took to passing out cocktails
to random passersby -- a Malibu rum punch for a woman
kayaker and a gin and tonic for a dad in a canoe. That
was pretty fun, but I think it would be a different
scene on Fourth of July.
Tom brought his beautiful little pram boat, Pip,
and it was a mighty pretty site seeing that boat scoot along
Heidi -- Eugenie & Klaus' two-month-old little girl -- got her
first boat ride, though not in Pip, which looked a little
small, a little unsteady to Mama Eugenie's eye.
Having to move the party to a Sunday cut down our plans for a
long evening of port, chocolate and board games. But I think
everyone enjoyed the evening on the porch -- including Tommy,
who made himself at home between Ben and Ray.
