Panorama from top of the Cape Poge lighthouse, Chappaquiddick, Martha's Vineyard, with Erica
The Kast family week on Martha's Vineyard was just a wistful wish the year I turned 70. "You can have it," said my daughter, Erica, and I did. Our motley mix includes the progeny and friends of many marriages, ranging in age from 2 (great-grandson Avi and granddaughter Arisha) to 77 (me). Some come now and then, some every year, some came once and not again. Births and deaths have altered us, but the event perdures.

Kim, Joan and Erica loved the stronger surf on Longpoint Beach, and I, as you can see, preferred to watch.
My son, Anton flew six hours each way to join us for a day, just in time for the family portrait. Granddaughter Emma, interning for Bernie Sanders; had the fun but missed the portrait; Aza was en route to Asia; Tom and family had just settled outside Vienna and could not come.
