Vacation time at RDC

We have just returned from the most marvelous vacation!
For the past 30 years, we have enjoyed at least a week
almost every summer on the shores of Squam Lake
at a magical place called Rockywold Deephaven Camps.
Our week there this year ranks as one of the best ever.
Our daughter, son-in-law and both grandkids were along,
so it was busy and very exciting.
We fell in love with RDC when our daughter was just four.
Seeing this beautiful part of nature through her eyes 
was truly a joy….
and now we are getting to do it all over again 
with Charlie and Mags!
The weather couldn't have been more perfect,
and the lake, although a bit chilly to our Southern toes,
was energizing and always a treat.

We hiked up our favorite Rattlesnake

Charlie took his first sail with his Dad

we kayaked

we swam

and some of us even square danced!

We were always inspired and awed by the nature around us

There were frogs

and there was tons of ice cream!

……and I even managed to get in a little knitting

my Banana Leaf Shawl has grown!

and I started a second Tan Yard Brook Shawl!

and we were serenaded by the wonderful call of the loons at night

Thanks for popping in!

Peace to you and yours!

Hi Judy: Just caught this lovely post. What a perfect visit/week! and of course, you got some knitting along with grandmother duties and appreciation of family and mother nature! How great to "redo" the NH adventure!

That looks like a great vacation! I love the mushrooms, but the frog is Numero Uno. I love frogs. :-)
(PS: I'll get back to your e-mails soon. Meanwhile: happy crafting!)

xxoo Annika

What a fabulous time you had! I love that Charlie got to paddle "by himself" and looks so pleased. The shawls are beautiful. Memories to last the ages are worth pursuit. xo

Sounds heavenly! I love the frog too... and can only imagine the sound of the loons! We don't have them here, but I have heard their call in movies. Your knitting is lovely!

What a fabulous vacation, so wonderful to re-live it through the eyes of the children too. Love that shawl.
