The annual clam bake and raft-up (coordinated by the gracious folks on Almost Home) was held October 5-6 in Fairlee Creek. You would think each clam bake would be the same but there are always a few surprises.
First off, it was warm enough to swim. Yes folks, on October 5, 2013, I was wearing a bathing suit and I got in the water. I didn't stay in the water long but I did lay on the bow of the boat for a while. I'm so accustomed to bundling up for the clam bake that it felt strange to apply sun screen.
The warm weather brought other boats into the Creek for the weekend. We've had clam bakes where we are the only boats in the basin, not this year.
2012 and 2011. (The 2011 post includes instructions so you can have your own clam bake.)
One last parting shot of the last raft-up for 2013.
