Over Labor Day
Weekend we brought
together (almost all) the
members of the Henry
Clews side of the family
for a reunion in
My eldest son, Henry,
his wife Mary and their
children, Hal (14) &
Neddy (12); my eldest
daughter Meg, her
husband Paul and their
two daughters, Eva (13)
& Rose (10); and my
daughter, Charlotte, her
husband Jerome and
their two daughters Lucy
(9) and Georgia (7).
On Saturday, we
gathered on Mt Desert
Island and hiked to the
top of Bald Peak, then
we went to the Asticou
Inn in Northeast Harbor
for lunch & popovers.

Branch Lake activities continued into Monday - when Alex & I spent a considerable
anount of time touring the (10-mile long) lake in search of one of the kayaks which
drifted off overnight. Happily, we found it - on the far side of the lake!
