a finestkind birthday day

the day dawned sunny and clear....up early and off to the shore for a surfside selfie.....tide nearly in and nice suit is packed in a box someplace but it was delightful nonetheless.  mom had bought me a beach chair stand-in for my birthday so we could lounge in the up...

some stand shopping to replenish our supply of fresh veggies....corn, beans, cukes, tomatoes, potatoes, basil, summer squash, eggplant and peppers...corn fritters tonight maybe?  and then....

some shack snacking on delish fried clams with a homemade tartar sauce....mmm, good!  this is our go-to seafood place mostly, though we have others, as they do fry their clams in batter.  red's eats is another, but waiting in line for an hour in the hot sun wasn't our idea of fun.  then a stop at the lobsterman's garage to bring some home and a quick run into joann's for sale stuff.  long stretch of good weather just right for some outdoor time.  lastly, a surprise visit from brother #1 and a small cake ended this birthday on just the right note!  spent every minute of this day having fun!


  1. Sounds like a delightful way to spend your birthday, Grace! Glad you had nice weather, and that you were able to be with some family members along the way.
    We went to a lobster shack near Two Lights, and the only thing on the menu that I could have was the green salad. Bummer. : )
    I love seafood, but with everything breaded, my options went down to one.

  2. that is the downside of lobster shacks i'm afraid...

  3. Congratulations on a very fine celebration; good views, good company, good food! All the best to you!

  4. Sounds like you enjoyed a wonderful day!

  5. Sounds like a perfect day! Great selfie.
