Hey! Long time no blog! We went on a family road trip, so I'm getting back into the swing of things. On A Little Beacon Blog, we've got a picture of Riverfest, a non-camp fire smore recipe, a little shout out to Bank Square, and a picture of Beacon's writeup in the Daily News that my friend saw and emailed to me. More soon!

I'm not sure if this is where a restaurant review would go, but a moderator is welcome to move it if it's in the wrong place. Thanks!!!

Jerry, our waiter, was pleasant and helpful. We appreciated that and most of the salad was fresh with a good homemade house…

My nephews son, William "Bud" Cauley, is playing today in the U.S. Open on NBC TV. He tees off at 11:30am and is currently sitting at +4 for the tournament.
We are very proud of Bud as this is his first PRO outing since leaving the University of Alabama. The 21 year old from Jacksonville Florida is going to be a player to watch in the future I am sure.
Anyway, hope you join us in supporting him....
