But, being a hearty crew, it was decided that one last dock party was in order. A few years ago, we used to do these affairs in July but this year that didn't happen so before we scatter for the winter, why not have one more pot luck supper?
This year, the kids became very interested in fishing and several adults on the dock showed them the basics and even how to bait a hook. The fish were small but the interest was intense.
Sometimes, the kids get bored with what all the adults are doing but there is always someone who can help show how to color within (or outside) the lines.
A dock party isn't successful without corn and our dockmate, John H, provided all that we could eat, boiled for just three minutes from his big gas-fired corn pot.
All in all, we had a great time and are looking forward to doing it again next year, mabye even a little earlier.
