Aug - Sept - A collection of pictures showing some of the action around TT Chesapeake Bay!  A few of us gathered every morning on the Pickleball courts.

In front:  Joyce and Eve.  Ken, Pete, Ric, Dwayne, Faye.

Over the weekend Wayne and Lynda played!

After the match:  Mike, Dennis, Lynda and Wayne.

We had met Dennis and Judy some years ago and continue to follow them on their Blog.  We were delighted to see that they were here at TT Chesapeake Bay.  Over the weekend, when Mike and Diane were here, we invited the four of them over for Buffalo Wings and Corn-On-The-Cob.

Some of the Pickleball action!

Oh, what fun!!!!


Thursday night we witnessed a mighty thunder storm!!  Major lightening over the River.  The next day there was evidence that it had been quite a storm!!  The biggest pine tree (right in the middle of the Horseshoe Pits) had been struck by lightening!!

There was an argument in the Ewbank camp!!  Diane was glad that the tree had been struck by lightening.  She had always wanted TT to take the tree down!!  It was in the middle of the Horseshoe Pits!!  But, Mike did not want the tree to be taken down.  He liked the tree.  One of the biggest pine trees he had ever seen.  It provided the only shade at that area of the Horseshoe Pits!!  Ken (a tree man himself) said it would not likely die.  We'll have to wait and see!!


Found this simple recipe in a Martha Stewart magazine!

Quarter a seedless watermelon and cut into 1 inch slices.

1 cup sugar
3/4 cut water
1/2 cup Tequila
1/4 cup Triple Sec
2 limes, halved
Flaked sea salt

Arrange watermelon in a single layer in two 9 by 13 inch baking dishes.

Bring sugar, water, Tequila and Triple Sec to a boil in a small sauce pan.  Cook, stirring until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute.  Let cool slightly.  Pur syrup over watermelon wedges and refrigerate for an hour.

Remove watermelon from syrup and arrange on a platter.  Squeeze limes over melon and season with salt.

Ken and I bought a seedless watermelon at Walmart to give it a try.  I took this serving over to Mike and Diane and some of their friends on Saturday evening, before they began their Golf card game.  It was so good!!!  I think everyone enjoyed it!!  So refreshing!!

My watermelon wedges look exactly like Martha's!!  HA HA

UUMMMM!  We have been enjoying the other half of the spiked watermelon for breakfast in the mornings!!
