I do have some photos from the oyster roast last night. We braved the chill and had a great time. There were a few hardy kids from Asheville who decided to spend the night in tents. It looked like an Occupy movement in the back yard.
Anyway, here are some of the photos from the evening. The first few are indicative of the host's sense of humor. This is a great family with a lot of warmth and creativity. I am amazed at the great things they do--going to LEAF (a music festival in NC) every year, keeping a traveling journal in which strangers are asked to write their thoughts, painting, playing in a band, and working as a carpenter. I am attracted to this kind of a family--open minded, clever, intellectual, and talented. The grown kids are wonderful to be around. And for the party, he and his kids decided to decorate the portable toilet with some art work and an eery green light. It was called a portal in time--LOL. And it was one of the only places to get out of the wind.

portalet time machine--remember to keep
arms and legs out of the portal hole!
