What a beautiful gift! I am wondering how that lovely tomato tart (?) turned out and if it is as yummy as it is lovely!


yes, it was just that delicious too! soooo fantastic - as was the shrimp salad with mango, her signature crabcakes for dinner and panna cotta with farmstand berries for dessert! 


deep sigh. . .lovely, serene, charming.
all the things a trip to the beach should be.
glad you had a wonderful(and apparently YUMMY)time!


Looks mighty relaxing girls! Is the house in dunes hers?


Viewing these fabulous pictures is a virtual vacation...just wonderful!


What a fun getaway! Good food, good company, great scenery.

Dear Charlotte--Am stitching your "love-ly" 2011 Sampler as a redwork project to be gifted to my son and daughter-in-law upon the birth of their first child. Will add dates and names in time (I hope) for a Christmas present. Thank you for a wonderful sampler Julierose
