The Beach

We spent the holiday weekend at the beach cabin in Kingston with our friends.

It was a little slice of heaven, mostly.





My two youngest girls even swam in the Sound, as the weather was so nice.

We had a few nights of campfires and S'mores Lance's father Doug came down to visit us and share in the camp-fire-goodness. T'was lovely.

Our friends, though they're from Utah they're really Venezuelan and Puertorican, were wonderful. It was a delight to have someone to speak Spanish with all weekend and they played their iPods full of Latino music and they cooked Venezuelan food. I was in heaven.
We had arepas, and empanadas, arroz y carraotas negras y platanos. Oh, and the jugo de parchita.

My friends brought their twins, Kimberly and Adam. None of them had ever seen a gooey duck before and due to the very low tides, there were people digging them all over our beach. Here's Adam holding one. I have many more photos of the weekend, which are posted on my Facebook page.



Thanks for coming Annabella and Paco. Now you know you must move up here!
