Things have been a bit crazy so I haven't posted much.  Lots going on and lots to share, just no time to write it up and post it.  I'll catch up - promise!  Got a bit beat up on the water this weekend, but learned some things about one of our sails - it doesn't work!  It's very pretty, but dangerous!  We're fine, the boat is fine, the sail is pretty beat up though.

Heading out to the Cape today for some Wellfleet oysters!  It was one of the things I really wanted to do while I was here and since it's going to be rainy and yucky, we figured we do some "land sailing" today.  

Red Sox game at Fenway on Saturday and then home on Sunday. 

Thanks for visiting!

I'll have more convention swap pix for you this week and maybe even a few sailing pix as well. We are hoping the weather cooperates and we get a chance to get out on the water.

Clam Boil with Lobster!!!!!

Jordan and Chris invited us over for a clam boil today and we brought along some lobsters to add to the pot!  WOW what a feast!  Here's some pix:

Pot full of  Goodness

Check out that wonderful broth!!!

All that was left when we were done

And there was desert too!!!!

Our gracious and gorgeous hostess - Shadow!

The food and the company were extraordinary and we came back to Belmira full and happy campers.  Thanks so much to Jordan, Chris and Shadow for the wonderful meal and outstanding company.

Believe it or not, we are going to another clam boil on Tuesday (have I mentioned that I am totally clam crazy?) with another of John's brothers and his family.  I don't think I can ever get enough clams or seafood, but I'm sure going to try and find out!  Last night we had dinner at a great restaurant in Fall River, MA and I had some of the tastiest mussels I think I've ever had and an unbelievably delicious pork and littlenecks!  I've been taking pictures, but I won't bore you with those too!  Tuesday I will get to meet my two grand nieces for the first time (Ella is 2 and Autymn is almost 1) and the camera will be working overtime then for sure!

I've got a fun freebie for you tomorrow so be sure to come back and visit!

Wednesday Night Jam at Westport Harbor Fishing Pier

I thought I would share a few photos with you of the weekly bluegrass jam that DH and his brother participate in:





There was lots of music and merriment and even some dancing!  I posted a pix of some of the children dancing on my FB page and I even took a short video.  I haven't figured out yet how to post that though.  They were so cute!  There was quite a crowd there enjoying the mild summer evening and good music.

I've got some more convention swaps to share with you tomorrow so be sure to stop back and visit.

Thanks for visiting!

Convention Swaps - Part 1

I have tons of swaps from Convention to share but I didn't want to overwhelm you all with them all at once.  Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing a few at a time so you will have something to look forward to.  I'll also be posting more sailing pictures (once the rain stops and we can actually get out sailing again).

Here's the first batch of swaps:






There are so very many talented paper crafters out there!  I actually brought one project with me to complete while I'm sailing.  I prepped everything and just need to assemble it.  I'll share that with you soon too, so be sure to come back and visit.

Sassy Chic Christmas in July - 2013

Before I left town on my little sailing journey, I did the Sassy Chic Christmas in July stamp camp. Such fun!!  Today and tomorrow I will share the cards the gals made at that camp (can't upload too many at once when I'm out floating around in the sea).







Hope you enjoyed these and I'll share the rest of them tomorrow!
