Sorry. The AFTER pictures will have to wait.
But here's your daily picture of The Girl collecting rocks, just to tide you over:
In other news, we went up to The Lake today to have a lovely afternoon with my in-laws and The Girl mused:
"Where IS everyone?"
I don't think she has realized until now that the majority of camp owners on The Lake are not year-'round residents, like we'll be and like her grandparents are.
We went on a chilly boat ride to tour all of the decks, docks, bunkhouses and roofs that Bob and his father and the crew have built this summer, as the sky steadily darkened and we raced the storm back down The Lake. The skies opened just as we reached the shelter of the first boathouse and we laughed and congratulated ourselves on our good luck.... and waited while the rain pounded down.
All in all: a good Saturday. How was yours?
