Where are we today ?Up early as usual even after a late night last night. An with heavy rains this morning I put together Saturday's posting, if you missed it you can Click HERE.
So with that done we headed out for an 80 minute drive to Tavistock to attend the Stere Family reunion on Suzie's side of the family. We try our best to make it every year so she can meet up with lots of her relatives. Aways a huge pot luck luncheon with about 150 or so of Suzies closest family members, attending again this year. This goes back many generations when Joseph Stere (Suzie's Great, great Grandfather) settled in New York State from Alsace-Lorriane and had a family there, his wife passed away then he came to Canada and had another family. Suzie has worked on the family tree for years and has pretty update information on all this.
The lunch begins at 1 pm with many tables of great mostly homemade dishes, pretty anything you could possibly want here. First 2 shots are of the main course table one from each end.

Then they have draws for door prizes. I guessed the weight of this watermelon right on at 13 lbs!. And Won this neat badminton set with 2 huge paddles a regular birdie and a huge birdie for us seniors to see, LOL... I am sure the grands will love playing it too. As for the Watermelon we will be eating it for quite while and even share some too.
We headed back to Arkona arriving about 4:30, no more rain today actually quite nice, warm and humid but not unbearable.
That was about it for today, no supper needed, we sure not hungry after that amazing lunch we enjoyed with some of her huge family.
