Just about every July 4 weekend we’re in the Adirondacks at our camp in Long Lake, NY. The camp is accessible only by boat or float plane. There’s no cell phone service – except for one spot about halfway down the lake. Lights are powered by solar panels and the refrigerator is powered by propane. With limited access to the outside world (we do have a land line – kind of weird to call it a ‘land’ line because it’s actually a phone line that’s in the lake) it allows us to connect with friends and family and affords me the opportunity to ‘unplug.’
With everything going on in the world sometimes it’s hard to reflect on the positive. Therefore it’s with a grateful heart that I write this post and share with you some memories of the times we’ve had at our camp over the last few years.
Paddling in a canoe with Mark is one of my favorite things to do. We have to work together as a team or we’ll end up underwater – literally and metaphorically speaking.
We’ll be there this July 4. I can’t wait to have a good time and make more memories. May you and your family have a fun, safe summer. Make memories. Be grateful.
