Seaside Lobster Party

Here are some photos from a lobster party we attended in Magnolia, Massachusetts last weekend.

This couple loves to garden and they do a spectacular job:

Instead of a beach, there's a terrace at the shoreline:

The party was catered by Woodman's of Essex, long famous for their clams and lobsters. I had a few hors d'oeuvres, and then chowder, a couple of steamers and mussels, lobster, corn on the cob, and coleslaw. (Note: At least I didn't eat the rubber bands.) For dessert, I had watermelon and sampled three kinds of cookies. So I was too full to take advantage of the musical ice cream truck that arrived in the driveway, stocked with every frozen treat one could imagine. Alas.
