Turkey Tracks:  August 12, 2013

Back to the Blog

 

Hi Folks!

I’ve missed you all and hope you have missed me!

My oldest son brought the two oldest grandchildren, Bo and Kelly, to Maine on July 20th and returned to Charleston to the rest of his family.  The boys attended a sailing camp here in the mornings and “Camp Lovey” in the afternoons and evenings.

While Mike was here I showed him the way to Acadia.  Here are the boys at the top of Cadillac Mountain–with its 360-degree views of the coast and land.

Here’s Kelly jumping fissures in the rocks:

During Camp Lovey I had a blast with them–and I think they had fun with me.  We swam, kayaked, played games (they learned how to play Hearts with me), watched movies, and cooked a lot of good food.  We were somewhat challenged by the weather as we’ve had a really cool and rainy summer.

We had one nice kayak trip on the river–during which Kelly ran into a bank of bushes and saw a wolf snarling at him.  We determined that he’d seen either a coyote or a very large grey fox–the latter has been seen along that side of the river all summer.  Kelly learned to paddle a whole lot better after that incident.

Mike returned with Tami and the girls (Talula and Mina), and they spent a little over a week.  We went out to Monhegan Island to celebrate Great Aunt Maryann’s birthday–and to remember John’s.  But that’s a tale for another day.
