Lazy, Hazy Summer Days
THERE'S nothing better than a camping trip to immerse you in nature, especially when it's pushing 100 degrees and the nature is a nearby lake. Phew - let the immersion begin! Actually the heat wasn't as oppressive as we had feared, but it did make us slow down and spend a lot more time in and around the campground than we usually do. This was a wonderful opportunity to watch the children at play together - all fourteen of them - many of whom didn't know each other well or at all. That didn't stop them becoming best buddies by the end of the weekend, sharing everything down to the last toasted marshmallow.
