Having a Wonderful Time

Cathryn arrived around noon on Thursday. Korey had to get some work done, so we girls had some time to chat and get caught up on each other’s lives. We took a walk and had a nice time.

I treated the two of them to supper at the Life is Good CafĂ© in Park Rapids. The owner is a former camp employee. It’s a kind of yuppie health food place with very good food. We had a nice dinner together.



After dinner we took a walk around the lake with their friend’s dog.


P1130047We stopped at the swimming beach and let the dog romp in the water. After our walk we played some games together and then it was time for bed.

Last year when I was up here around this time of year, the tics were quite bad. This year I’ve only found a few of them on my legs. I’m not complaining about that!



Friday morning we had breakfast here at camp and then Korey had some work to do. Cathryn and I hiked around some of the camp paths. We were gone for about 1-1/2 hours. We went to a suspension bridge which was kind of rickety.



P1130052There were some beautiful wild iris plants growing next to the water. After lunch Cathryn left for a wedding she is attending in Minneapolis this weekend. Korey had to do some lifeguard refresher training with his camp staff.





Here he is instructing them at the swim beach.


I took him out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant in town for his birthday dinner. My baby will be 28 on June 28th. Hey, I just realized it will be his golden birthday. I wonder if he’s thought of that.

After dinner we sat on the dock for a while. There is a pair of loons that build a nest on Lake Morgan every year. Here’s one of the loons sitting on the nest. There are a couple of turtles in the water near the bottom of the picture.


Here’s the other loon swimming in the lake.


Camp Emmaus is located on Lake Morgan. The lake is the camp’s property and there are no homes or other structures on the lake other than the camp. It’s such a peaceful and beautiful setting. I just love it here.
