... and a photographer, filmmaker, builder, reporter/chicken farmer, a massage therapist. We had a little multi-profession dinner Tuesday evening with visiting North Carolina potter Tracey Broome and her husband Gerry and daughter Wesley. Our friends Mike and Tammy Race joined us, and brought dessert. The Broomes were headed back south after a week or so of seafood consumption on the coast of Maine.
They stopped for an overnight here on Cape Cod and we gathered some local scallops and bluefish for the grill, and an assortment of other stuff and sat for a couple of hours trading stories that ranged from Iraq to Carolina to New Mexico to Cape Cod. We met Tracey at Southern Pines, N.C., last fall when the blogging potters show opened there. But we hadn't met Gerry or Wesley. Both nice folks and talented with a camera and good with conversation. Wesley's headed to film school and should be interesting to watch in the next few years.
Tracey left two of her beautiful barns here with us. They join one she sent last year on the top of our old piano.
They were only here overnight, with Wesley staying in the "Sir Douglas Fitch Suite" and the parents in the "Queen Hannah" accommodations. We all headed early to Daily Brew in Cataumet for breakfast with them, before leading them briefly to Mike and Tammy's and then to the Bourne Bridge rotary and pointing them south. They might be home by now. It's remarkable what wonderful people we've met through this blogging thing.
