Vacation weekend


Okay, I’ve done my whining for the moment, now I want to tell you about our wonderful weekend.  Happy 4th to everyone.  We took our vacation early. Like nearly every other place in the US, there is only one word for our weather lately  - HOT!  Where we live we can often get up to 95 – 98 on a hot, humid summer afternoon, but the prediction for Friday, Saturday and Sunday was 103, 100, and 99.  Not great.  So would you believe we went to a hotel with no air conditioning? We did, and it was wonderful. 

Even most of the mountains were hot, but not where we went.  I think we might have been on the edge of the world.  The cool breeze that flowed through our room and onto the deck could almost have been described as chilly as it grew dark.  Another wonderful perk of this particular place was the privacy.  We could easily go nude on the deck – and we did.  I didn’t think anyone would be peeking in from a building behind us.  I’ll let you judge, this was the view from our balcony.





We went with another couple; he was the best man in our wedding.  He and Nick enjoy photography and there was plenty of good subject matter.  But the ones I’m posting here are some of the one’s I took, except for the one of me here.  Our weekend consisted of picture taking, good food and peacefully rocking on the deck. Well that and a little loving on the deck while holding onto the rail.  We hated to waste such an opportunity.









We also got to see Mollie for supper Saturday night.  She looked great! She was tanned – not from laying out in the sun or a tanning bed, but from playing outside all summer.  She laughed when she told me she hadn’t worn any make up in over a month and she didn’t even know where hers was. 

She was really happy about this up coming week. This is when the campers are mentally challenged adults between 18 and 60.  All the campers have a one-on-one councilor and many of the former staffers come back for this week to be with the adult campers that they have been with before.  They only need three new female councilors for this session and Mollie got to be one of the three!  She was so excited to be chosen.  She usually calls me on Saturday afternoon and I can’t wait to hear how her week went.

Now back at home I was grateful to be on the receiving end of a short spanking this morning.  Nick told me I needed to start keeping up with my WW points – and I know he’s right.  I walked this morning before breakfast.  This weekend put on some pounds, I’m afraid.  Here is one more picture I saw at the restaurant where we ate with Mollie





Here’s hoping Nick has plans to do some smoking this week!

That's why I love the mountains. When it's hot in the valley, you just go higher up, until the temperature is just fine.
Mollie seems to be one wonderfull and happy camper.
Well, well, that Nick, he's fast in addressing problems. It is a pity that his solution might raise the temperature again.
Happy 4th of July!
Love,
Bas
