Back in May, there was important news from Baltimore. This July being Scott's birthday, and the first visit from Steve and Jocelyn and Kevin in a long time, we lived it up!

The Concert

A few days after the White Mountains, the three backpackers were all cleaned up, and we attended the concert of the Young Artists Orchestra at Tanglewood. Our relative John B. was performing in a program featuring Mahler's Fifth Symphony. We loved the Monteverdi as well.

After the concert, we enjoyed the Tanglewood environment, where John B. had been staying for 4 weeks.

We went to dinner at the French restaurant in Lee. Among the entrées were three half-ducks and one burger.

Canoe Orienteering

The next morning's activity was the obscure sport of canoe orienteering. This was Steve's first time orienteering. Only competitive with each other, we hardly noticed as the national champions blew by.

Dinner at Home

This was Steve's first time eating New England lobster, and as an experienced crab chef he took a hand in the cooking as well. When the pot came to a boil, the guys recreated Uncle Dave's lobster race.

After the traditional singing of "Happy Birthday", smoke got in Scott's eyes.


4 guys playing croquet
Festivities continued after dinner was cleaned up. All six of us played croquet, with Steve winning as Kevin ran into trouble on the final pair of wickets.

Later we played Sequence while "Red River" showed on the TV. Trays of nachos were served. Each of the three teams won one game.

The next day Kevin flew back early. The final game of the visit was Mexican Train, won by Phil.
