The cocktail party before....

My Hubby's 40th Class reunion.......was a time to remember for sure. One of my husbands classmates invited the class to his home for a quick cocktail party before the reunion. so we left from home on a beautiful Summer Saturday.

 

We took the back country roads and got to go here......

 You know one of those secret places that say for residents ONLY! Beautiful lighted stone entry....




Sweeping private driveways that lead to breathtaking homes right on the ocean.


 The stunning view from the backyard. The guests gathered and catching up was done, but all were taken in by the view.

 The home was beyond compare, like nothing I have ever seen in real life. It looked like the home from Somethings Gotta Give. What I saw of the interior was stunning, but I did not feel comfortable asking if I could take pictures. It is a private home.....weekends and summer only! The owners were wonderful hosts and just nice people. I thought we were so lucky to be there.

This was a picture of the class....an all boys school in 1971, but now has girls too.
It was a wonderful summer evening spent in great company in a setting more beautiful than one could imagine.
We came home to our humble Country Nest, took off our shoes and snuggled in.
