Labor Day Weekend

Saturday, August 30, 2008 -- on Beaufort Lake near Three Lakes, MI

We're taking it easy this morning, updating the website and the online photo collection, reading various blogs and online newspapers, and waiting for the arrival of our son and daughter-in-law, Justin & Kaytlyn. They're driving up from Appleton for the weekend. And the weather looks absolutely perfect for canoeing, kayaking, sailing, and slow pontoon boat excursions around the lake. It should be a good time.

I'm flabbergasted how fast the summer has gone this year. Labor Day is the traditional end of the summer and that means fall is right around the corner. As I've mentioned before, there are a few hints at fall color in the woods but a lot fewer than last year. Within a couple more weeks though it'll be glorious.

Unfortunately, we won't be here to see it as this is our last weekend at Camp Soldner. It's hard to leave -- we've had a great and relaxing time. But we have an appointment at Spartan (the maker of our chassis) in Charlotte Michigan (near Lansing) a week from Tuesday to have a chassis checkup and alignment. We'll also spend some time with Dar's #1 favorite sister and her husband Jack, who live in Kalamazoo.

There are so many places yet to be explored.
