We have been expecting Elif and Mina on July 4 around 2:30 PM. And that evening around 11 PM our relatives from North Carolina were expected to arrive. Well, partly the weather and partly due to the Trump’s July 4 show, Elif and Mina arrived around 7:30 PM and the crew from North Carolina did not even make it that evening and arrived the following day.
It was good to see everyone despite the travel problems and serious delays. We did some things altogether and others with my staying home due to the heat and extensive walking being part of the outing. All said it was fun, including a musical we saw at The Theater By The Sea in Westerly. The building was old but well-maintained, the cast was close enough to the movie version and we all enjoyed the show. The next evening, we enjoyed a nice dinner at Efendi’s restaurant, even a surprise birthday cheesecake! The North Carolina crew is back home, the girls will be here until Monday. Below are some photographs that I gathered from everyone to share with our family and friends.
