There was no sandy beach or ocean nearby but at least it felt like the Caribbean at Steph’s house this weekend!  With the continuing summer heat, it was lovely to sit out in the backyard and catch a few breezes chatting with friends while listening to some Caribbean tunes

As usual, there was a huge array of wonderful hors d’oeuvres, salads and goodies provided by everyone, and a special shout out to Dorothy for her chicken sliders, which were yummy. Many thanks to Stephanie for sharing her house with almost 40 people, working hard to ensure everyone had what they needed and of course preparing all those margaritas and pina coladas. Thanks also to the team of volunteers who helped organize, serve and clean up.

Here are a few pics of the event.  Click on a picture to open the slide show.
