And opposite the pool were the picnic tables, ihc portable grill and the big one built of fieldstone. the well-equipped bar, The picnic grounds were so perfect that it was almost easier to have a picnic for twenty than a dinner party for four.

The picnic grounds were on the far hill beyond the rose garden to the rear of the house, on the other side of the ravine. Ann was as fond of the ravine as she was of Ihe gas fireplace In her bedroom or the grandfather clock on the landing. It was deep and rocky (treacherous, too, and dangerous, although those words were never used to describe it until after the 13th of May) and there were broad stone steps leading from the rose garden down into the ravine. There were steps going up the other side, of course, Steps that led to the picnic grounds.
