Weidemeyer Family Reunion
July 2009

For this reunion we went to Louisiana. Dawn and John were hosts to the onslaught of relatives. They live on the northeast side of Lake Pontchartrain, about a half-hour from New Orleans.

For several days they opened their lovely home to us as 'home base' for meals and sightseeing, and even had several family members stay with them for the duration. And because I arrived on my birthday, I got a birthday cake.

We ate a lot and relaxed even more.

John's pride and joy is his sailboat, the Apparition.

John keeps the sailboat moored to a deck along the back yard. On two different occasions he took groups for rides on Lake Pontchartrain. When I went out with them, we were gone for several hours, and oh my, was it nice. It's a lot of work for John, but he obviously loves it.
