A Coastal Reunion

I had the good fortune to be invited to the beach for a weekend reunion with former roommates & suitemates to celebrate our milestone birthdays this year. . .

The six of us happy & lucky to have a friend/roommate with access to a beach house. . .

Enjoying the scenery while reminiscing on our college years . . .

Reflecting on old times. . .

As we had just begun to spread our wings. . .


Strolling on the beach. . .

Catching up on the status of classmates. . .

Basking in each other’s company. . .

And enjoying good meals & conversation . . .

Many thanks to our generous hostess and also to our talented chef for our weekend of fun :)

Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
