Afterward we all returned to the house and had dinner. Spouse grilled chicken in advance which he warmed up and served with tzatziki, hummus, olives, feta, warm pita bread, and Greek salad. We ate on the screened porch since the weather was so nice. It was delicious and a nice change from all the burgers and dogs we'd been eating since Memorial Day. Joe P brought chocolate cake and apple pie for dessert. After dinner we drove down the street to the public beach and settled in to watch the fireworks. They were good, but not as good as last year's.
Sat I had to work again, so Spouse went to the beach with Steven & Thad and Joe P. Late that afternoon we stopped in briefly at our neighbor's open house (they bought the old church on the corner, gutted it, and turned it into a home) so we could see how it turned out. It was nice but too stark and modern for my taste. After that we met up with some other neighbors for a little BBQ. We took my special barbequed baked beans. We had a nice time and again, the weather was delicious.
Sun I had to work yet again, but we invited Steven & Thad and Joe P over to eat left-overs from Friday's Greek dinner. Again we enjoyed being on the screened porch since we knew it was the last "nice day" we'd have for a while. (Today and tomorrow are scheduled to be well into the 90s.)
So it was a nice holiday weekend of fun, food, and friends despite my having to work all 3 days.
