Although Sunday September 11 dawned windy and blustery, it was quick to morph into a picture- perfect afternoon of warmth and sunshine. It was also a fitting background for the LDEI Boston Annual Meeting and clambake being held at Co-President Louise Kasdon's elegant waterside-home in Cohasset. A selection of wines and amuses-bouche began the festivities thus encouraging the flow of conversation. Well-appointed tables on Louisa's spacious veranda were soon overflowing with plates piled high with steamers, corn on the cob and, of course, succulent New England lobsters. Various wines were served with the crustaceans and for dessert there was a bountiful selection of the best apple pies of autumn along with a number of yummy pastries and bars.
It was indeed a fitting way to welcome in the sunny but shortened days of September and also the beginnings of a new year for the members and friends of our LDEI Boston chapter.
