- Lots of relatives, some of whom I knew, many of whom I didn't know but kind of pretended to know because I wasn't sure which ones I'd met twenty years ago but forgotten and which ones I really didn't know.
- Lots of sheep.
- Lots of old friends.
- Some very adorable wee ones.
- Lots of Johnnies (and I'm happy to report that they dress as awfully as always).
- A lady crabbing, pulling huge, iridescent, green and blue monsters out of the water as they clung greedily to raw chicken necks, then tossing them into a bucket from which they stared furiously up at us, claws at the ready, looking for a fight.
- Lots of boats.
- Some of our flood-funked antiques, partially restored to their former glory.
- Lots of schematics for Civil War-era cannons (don't ask).
- Three deer.
