Celebration On Pine Island

1 Comment

My sister has one of the most adorable homes on Pine Island.  It’s small, but she’s utilized the space well.  Though our home is much larger, at times, her house has a bigger feel. 

Around 1:00 in the afternoon, the guys fired up the grill.  We were having clams first followed by london broil, hamburgers and hotdogs, ears of roasted corn and deviled eggs.  Those clams were really good by the way.  That’s Uncle Darryl working hard at the grill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We even invited a neighbor lady whose husband recently passed away.  She has no kids at all and no family close by.  Check out that clam action!   It didn’t take long to rip through 100 that’s for sure.  After the appetizers were downed, the real food was ready right on time.  And of course, since July 3rd was mom’s birthday and we were all out of town for Father’s Day (mom was in D.C. visiting a friend) we concluded our day with a vanilla bean bundt cake accompanied by salted caramel gelato.   Both dessert items were a boxed mixture and they were amazing.  We added some dark chocolate pieces to the gelato and it was heavenly.  I hope there’s still some left when I return to the island on Friday, but I’m not betting on it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out this awesome piece of Brain Coral that Darryl brought back from the beach in the Bahamas.  This is perfect, it weighs a ton and it resonates a helmet.  Totally cool.
