When the clouds come

September 26, 2018


As we are savoring the last days of kayaking for the season, I am becoming a lot more reflective.

Comments Off on Time to mix things up

I had an “aha” moment this summer: “Vacation, for me, is just as much a state of mind as a state of place.” We normally don’t go away in the summer; I don’t like the crowds. It can be fun to stick close to home. Our town is deserted since most folks go away. These […]
