Photo diary: two weekends in a row

We spent Fourth of July weekend at our friends Andy and Michael’s beautiful house in Bucks County, mostly sitting around the pool sunning and reading quietly. But the weekend began with a Sausage Fest for 16 gay men featuring 17 different varieties transported across state lines by Tom and Michael from DC. There were backyard fireworks. Saturday night we attended the local community picnic, band concert, and fireworks display. Sunday afternoon Mr. David Zinn drove up from Philadelphia to visit.

This weekend was even more chill. Aside from the farmer’s market, the main activity was a Sunday afternoon walk, stopping first to observe the tribute to Bill Cunningham in the Bergdorf windows, then taxiing up to the Met Museum for high-speed tours of three exhibitions on the second floor: “Pergamon and the Hellenistic Kingdoms of the Ancient World,” “Court & Cosmos: The Great Art of the Seljuos,” and “Divine Pleasures: Painting from India’s Rajput Courts — The Kronos Collection.” We meandered back on foot through Central Park and the always unpredictable staging area in front of Bethesda Fountain.
