Happy Father’s Day Lobster As More Friends Come, Billy’s Chowder House

6/15/14 Sunday in Moody, ME (Moody Beach-TT/OW)

For Mass here at St. Mary’s they had just 2 musicians (piano and flute) and the cantor who led all songs. I was impressed how much of the congregation chimed in. Then came the “Amen” which we all sang but when we stood at the end Father sort of had an “aside” with us noting that it didn’t sound especially rousing here on Trinity Sunday, so would we “hit the Amen again.” Of course THAT was rousing. Fun.

When we got back to the campground our other friends were arriving, so we (John mostly) helped them find good spots and settle in. Next, all wanted to join Bill/Susan and us for the Lobster dinner available at half price for all Fathers at Billy’s Chowder House. I’m sorry I didn’t get a photo of John with his 2 lb. whole lobster but I knew he didn’t like lobster (he gave it to me) and he doesn’t like his picture taken. Larry ate all his lobster, as did I. Bill and Randy shared theirs with their wives. You could say dear John shared ALL of his! He really liked his chowder (what Billy’s was recommended for) but wasn’t all that excited about their fish and chips. Dang – not good for his Father’s Day dinner.

We all decided to check out the local beach (free parking) at the end of Mile Road-just beyond Billy’s Chowder House which is also on Mile Rd. Sorry no photos here either. I did spot several good looking young guys running with just their shorts and shores on….

Back home we did some visiting then Bill and I took naps while John watched golf’s US Open. Don’t know about the others…I was napping for 2 hours!

Supper time so John went over to Susan’s. When he didn’t return I went there as well. Soon Larry brought Butter Pecan ice cream and lemon pound cake and Randy/Sherry joined us. First time I’ve had ice cream for supper. It sure was fun!! We visited until the mosquitoes got too frisky, retiring to our respective RVs. John and I hit the sack after a little showers and reading. He has an early day tomorrow: golf with Bill.  I’ll leave you with a bit of Maine.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
