lobsters in Maine Singing "Rock Lobster" with the B52s in Piedmont Park to celebrate Gay Pride Day, looking from our balcony over San Diego Bay, taking in the Pacific at La Jolla, where we had seafood overlooking the ocean at George's Cove, or strolling the Riverwalk in San Antonio and eating fresh avacado and steaks at Boudro's, we have had a delicious summer so far. Then there was Kennebunkport, dining on Lobster Napoleon at the Colony Resort, watching the full moon rise over the Atlantic. 

We've also hiked the Blue Ridge with Starr and Bruce, Pamela and Bob. We dined in

Asheville with David and Tricia, and went twice to the Laughing Seed. There was a visit with the Killians at Tybee. And for the 4th of July, we attended a party in honor of Paula Gately Tillman and Joe Roman from Baltimore. The weekend of July 21, Starr and Bruce cooked us a feast and we had a fine party on Lookout Mt joined by Pamela and Bob on the eve of our Civil Union. 

Civil Union and Tennis in New England July-August 2000 

On July 29, we were wed by Civil Union on a sunny morning in a garden gazebo in Essex Junction, Vermont. Cecile Tougas was our witness. From nearby Burlington, we traveled to New Hampshire for a week of tennis on the red clay courts of the New England Tennis Club. We rode the cog rail to the top of Mt. Washington and hiked the White Mountains. We continued on to Woodstock, Vermont where we visited the Billings Farm, and ended our trip in colorful Brattleboro.
