Holiday Hangover

We're back from our week of camping at Gull Lake. It was fantastic. We really couldn't have asked for anything better- the weather was unusually hot (about 30 degrees every day), no evening thunder storms, the beach close by and we figured out how to use our AC on 15 amp power!

Every day we woke up, had breakfast and headed down to the lake where we would meet up with friends and spend the day playing in the water, in the sand and just lounging around in the hot sun or warm shade.  Most days we spent about 7 hours of the day at the beach. Lots of great conversations, fun activities and wonderful memories were made.

After the beach, we headed back to the trailer for supper, which was usually sandwiches as it was far too hot to start a fire to cook the meals I had planned. Then it was more time with friends visiting, riding bikes and playing at the park and making glowstick art in the air before everyone fell asleep as soon as their heads hit the pillows.

It was a perfectly wonderful week and I can't wait to do it again next year at the same place with the same fantastic friends.

But now that we are home, we're back to reality. There's dishes to be done, floors to be vacuumed, laundry to be washed, appointments to attend.....  I'm finding it hard to get back into the swing of normal life, wishing I was sitting on the beach, drink in hand and a book on my lap.

Ah, well. My holiday hangover will soon disappear...
