Leaving great friends


August 24
We had coffee in the gazebo this morning and then we had a quick lesson with the rowboat. Annette and I couldn’t seem to master the concept of the sliding seat and rowing at the same time. Barb is the hands down winner. Rumor has it she had some previous experience at camp. I think we will stick to the kayaks. It rained most of the day, along with some thunder, lighting and hail. So we played with the computers while Sherri prepared dinner. The crew from across the lake showed up for dinner with their yellow slickers. They all looked like they were on the same crew team. I took a few picks but you can’t see them. Note to self, you have to put the sim card back in the camera if you expect to see picks. After a great T bone steak dinner and a few wines, the yellow slicker crew headed back across the lake. A great time was had by all. And big thanks to Norm and Sherri for making it happen.

We had coffee in the gazebo again this morning. What a great way to start the day. It was a little too windy to kayak or play tennis so we decided to try our luck on the Hessel Ridge golf course. We played nine holes of outstanding golf. The ladies went out first and that was the last we saw of them until the 9th hole. They were all sitting there waiting for us to finish. I don’t think they were laughing at us, they were all just so happy to see us. I had the best score and lost, only in golf can you score more points and loose. After golf we had a few beers and headed back to the island. We had another great dinner and a movie before heading off to bed.

We had coffee in the gazebo again this morning. It was a sad morning because it was our last. We took our last trip across the lake and said farewell to our dear friends Norm and Sherri. We will miss you both so hurry back to Florida. We took another detour and decided to take the road less traveled. We took the coast road along Lake Michigan, with a stop at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, Norm’s recommendation. What a fantastic site. There huge white dunes that stretch all the way to the lake. It’s a tough climb but well worth the views from the top. After hiking back to the car we had lunch and hit the coast road all the way to Holland Michigan for the night. We had a pizza at Goog’s Pub and Grub and are laying here in bed waiting for it to digest. Another note to self; no pepperoni after 7PM! It’s off to French Lick Indiana tomorrow.
