We have guests this week. Richard's daughter, Dianna, son, Richard, and Dianna's husband, Michael. So special plans had to be made for merry making and fun. This is Richard's birthday week: he will be 83 on August 14.
David mentioned that the musical, "Grey Gardens," was at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, so I got tickets which included a pre-theater "picnic" dinner supplied by Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton. Sag Harbor is an old whaling village on the south shore of Long Island, so this trip would require two ferry rides across Peconic Bay. The first, the North Ferry, goes from Greenport to Shelter Island, and the second, the South Ferry, goes from Shelter Island to Sag Harbor.

we steam toward Sag Harbor.
The set for "Grey Gardens,"
the story of Big Edie and Little Edie Beale,
two eccentric women living in a
house in East Hampton.
Rachel York and Betty Buckley starred
in the show.
When we got to the theater, I saw Christine Ebersole
in the lobby. She had attended the matinee.
Christine starred in the Broadway production
of Grey Gardens.
Although I spoke to her, I did not get her picture.
My bad as a blogger/journalist.
She looked fantastic in a long white dress
with her terrific blond hair.
Our table, set up in the lobby.
We each got a Bay Street Theater cap.
Tuna sandwiches and sweet potato chips.
Dinner also included one drink from the bar.
