Bradford's Brigade and Quinebagos Chapters by Pat Kane
Blackman's Point, Marshfield, MA 10/5 – 10/8
Friday was a great, sunny, and windy day to start the campout. The ocean was in it's glory. Those folks who arrived on Thursday were there to greet those just arriving. There were a total of 11 rigs in attendance. Socializing started as soon as the rigs were in place. Cheese, crackers and libations were enjoyed by some prior to dinner. Joe & Irene Masterson with help from Mark & Tricia Whitehouse provided meatball subs and salad. Chili made by Stu Hazen was also on the menu. It was all delicious. Thanks so much to the chefs!
Saturday was cloudy, but warmer. Breakfast was delicious. Joe & Irene Masterson and their grandsons Justin and Trevor were responsible for the special order breakfast sandwiches. We were able to sit outside watching for seals, boats and unfortunately what we believed was a partial whale carcass. Some folks went shopping, others checked out the area. Again, food reigned superior with pre-dinner snacks, dinner at Haddad's, and even desserts.
Sunday after another amazing breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, and english muffins provided by Joe & Irene and their family chefs, Trevor and Justin, folks spent the day with binoculars watching the scene of the ever changing ocean. Great conversation and sharing of travel stories were the norm. Yes, there were more snacks, even football on an outside TV! A really nice relaxing day for all. Evening proved a bit challenging due to the wind, cold and mist. The pot luck dinner ended up with all coming together to fill their plates. However, we returned to our rigs to eat.
Monday it was time to say good bye. Everyone agreed that the campout was wonderful, fun and relaxing. Thanks again to the Mastersons and Whitehouses for all their hard work. We are hopeful that we will be back next year. It is a campout not to miss!
