Jude and I got to spend a weekend with some great folks, old friends and new acquaintances, at a spectacular destination, Bowman Island on Squam Lake. To say it was fun would be a gross understatement, we had a blast! Paddling, swimming in crystal clear water, laughing, listening to stories around the campfire, having a drink or two, and eating! Oh the eating! Food outside always tastes better, and there was no shortage of delicious things to try! From Christine's chicken chili to Roberta's home fries and everything in between! Special thanks to Jen for breakfast burritos and cheeseburgers, and to Jess for the best blueberry buckwheat pancakes I have ever had! Even Frank was in on the cooking, feeding me hot dogs and bacon! Then there was Brett who had a lot of kitchen duty! There were some great jambalayas, and steak tips by Steve-o! Sorry if I missed anybody, everybody pitched in with something, it was fantastic!
Special thanks to Dean-o for ferrying a ton of gear to and from the island, and super big thanks to Steve-o for organizing and including us! It couldn't have been better! Camping under a bright moon, falling asleep to the call of the loons, waking to the warm, bright sun, all soul-cleansing moments! Thanks again to everyone for a great weekend!
