by Kinsale Museum Director Lynn E. Norris

We were so delighted to see so friends from so many walks of life at the Strawberry Festival on Saturday!

Miniature horses and their fullsize cohorts trumpeted their friendly neighs in time with the music that filled the park, courtesy of the  Muddy Boots Band.  Larry McKenney, Kenny Beauchamp, Nancy Moss, Kenny Taylor and Doug Norris rocked the day with rhythm.

Folks came from as far off as Florida (the Hornbys on their way to their home stomping grounds in New York).

There were strawberries redolent of the promise of spring and 36 pound cakes -- enough to have a few left over for the Firemen’s Memorial Day Friday carry-out chicken dinner fundraiser at the substation.

Tiny smiling sleepy babies were strolled in style by proud mamas.

You could not have asked for cuter grandkids on hand to have their faces painted in strawberry hues and enjoy story-telling and coloring, to find the Scavenger Hunt scenes and strawberry eggs.

There were NO CRABS to be had, hence no crabcakes or soft crabs.  But the BBQ and burgers were delicious.

More than 40 visitors signed in at the Museum.

We met the Napiers, enthusiastic new residents of Murphys Mill  Lane.  And Peggy Evans Garland introduced her daughter’s inlaws, who are building on Brook Avenue on lot #7 (which is between where the Bodeens and the Luthys used to live).

In closing, thanks so much to the folks who brought in auction items to swell the ranks of the Museum’s summer fund-raiser.

Pat and Dick Draper donated a large birch PlanToys dollhouse with a HUGE amount of furniture and accessories – to be enjoyed by the accompanying dolls.  Wrenn Gladwell and Kara Padgett helped put things in order.

And I might as well admit it:  I have already been over to look inside the little cupboards and set a few more things on the little kitchen table and make pretend with the dolls TWICE after hours.
