One nice thing about being back east in May for Surtex is getting to celebrate Mom's birthday in person afterwards. We had a cookout and birthday cake in my sister Nancy's backyard.
Here's Nancy in her sunroom/music room, where she gives piano lessons.
Here's a nice shot of Nancy's husband John and his gorgeous daughter, my step niece Katlyn.
We took a drive with Mom up to Farnham's in Essex.
There's a beautiful view of the salt marsh from the restaurant. We saw an Eastern Kingbird and a Snowy Egret from the window.
After lunch we took a dive around Rocky Neck, Gloucester. We felt compelled to turn around and take a drive-by photo of the "No Photographing" sign here.
Mom enjoyed her little outing.
