Family reunion at Plymouth, Mass to honor Elizabeth Sahatjian
I just returned from a week in Massachusetts during which time I visited with my sister, my nieces and nephew, my Aunt Betty, my cousin Betty Ann and her daughter, and my cousin Bill's entire family. Bill rented a "cottage" at Plymouth, Mass. overlooking Plymouth Harbor and kept everyone busy all week with fishing and sailing excursions, a ball game at Fenway, and just hanging out at the beach reminiscing and eating. We honored my aunt Thursday night with a party and presents and lots of photos. She's the matriarch of the family (my mother's sister) and she was the star of the show. I hate to say it, but I'd never been to Plymouth before and took this opportunity to visit Plymouth Rock (smaller than I'd imagined) and walk around the town. It was a fun week and I sampled all the great food in New England that you can't duplicate in California; steamers, lobster, fried clams, great produce, and ICE CREAM! I doubt that we'll ever be able to get this group together again, so it was wonderful to have this opportunity to see everyone in such an idyllic setting.
