Camp is a quiet place this time of year and it’s always very sad when Sue and I begin packing for the trip home. We’ve truly enjoyed our paradise in the North Woods and have spent time biking, fishing, sailing and golfing for the past month and a half since camp ended. We’ve also spent time gardening and I’ve reseeded the softball and parts of the athletic fields hoping the fall rain and winter snow will create enough moisture to grow grass in the bare spots that were created as a result of the 7 year drought we’ve had. Speaking of the drought… it’s over and the water levels in Spider Lake are almost back to normal. You frog hunters will be glad to know that there is water in Sue’s slip and frog hunting should be awesome next year.
Tomorrow we head for Tucson by way of Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park. We just hope we don’t run into an early winter blizzard and we’ll try to keep Phoebe from chasing Grizzly Bears and Elk.
We always hope it’s raining and cold when we leave making it easier to say goodbye to camp. But not this year, it’s spectacular fall weather and the leaves are turning beautiful shades of red and yellow. I’ve taken some pictures to show you how beautiful camp is this time of year. We’ll honk as we leave and be doing the same thing many of you do when you leave camp for the summer. We’ll be counting down the days until we can return.
