Laissez le bon temps rouler! (if a New Englander can be allowed to say that)

I thought the day might go like this: We gather at the cottage, some of us head to Harkness Memorial Park, a few miles away for photography (LF friendly, really beautiful.) Some may choose to stay at the house and go to the swimming beach down the road. There will be a couple of simple kayaks that we might be able to coordinate for those who want to paddle and the whole scene is very kid friendly, so people are really encouraged to bring family. (Come on Suzanne, prove that you don't just rent those kids for photo sessions!) I'll be cooking pulled pork ahead of time and maybe smoking some fish that day. Provisions can be made for dogs and burgers, chicken or even tempe or tofu, if there are vegans in the crowd. If people want to share the food load in some small way, make suggestions, if not, bring a beverage of your choice.
Here's one photographer's take on the park.
PM me when you know you are coming and if you have questions or want to be more involved in the planning. Papagene and I are hosting this, though, so it doesn't have to be a big group effort - just show up and have a good time!
There is a lot of other stuff in the area if you want to make a more extended visit of it. Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, ferries to Long Island, Block Island and Fishers Island and, of course, the casinos are all within a very short drive of Waterford. Norwich, New London and Stonington each have their own photographic charm as well. Let's see if we can set a record for a NEAPUG gathering!
