Two Writing Teachers
"Camp? I loved going to camp in 6th grade and college. I wonder if anyone would go with me?" I wondered to myself.
I polled a few friends, and YES! My BFF of 28 years, Beth, agreed that we should go.
I haven't had this much fun in a long time!
After talking (mostly me, sorry, Beth!) for most of the evening, we went to bed in our chilly bunks. We woke at 6:30 a.m. for a lovely yoga class led by one of the campers (she's come every year since '79!).
Saturday included a hike to breakfast and lunch, a walk across the frozen lake, a photography seminar, 30 minutes of downtime (I wrote 5 pages in my journal!), a mystery dinner and wine tasting. The day ended with Tai Chi at 9:00 p.m.

We met many athletic and young-minded ladies between the ages of 20 and 81. They were an inspiration to both of us! One group plays pickle ball twice per week, and all of them could out-hike me!

I learned that we need to stretch ourselves - get out of our daily routine - and renew our body, both emotionally and physically. Beth and I didn't figure out the answers to our current life stresses, but we connected and renewed our friendship, reminding each other why we're friends.
Reminding ourselves to have fun and not be so serious.
