And what a lovely day it was! Overcast skies and a nice breeze kept it from being too hot, and good friends, wonderful food and the party atmosphere made it the best summer kick off to date.
For one lucky couple, who met at the race five years ago, it was also their wedding day!
Cars, tents and people in various stages of revelry covered the grounds to watch the races.
And just like that, we've lept into the outdoor season, with lots of plans for golf outings, picnics, music and craft festivals and time spent near the water.
How do you like to spend your time outside, dear friends? Please share; I would love to hear!
