The weather right now is gorgeous- solid 30′s, sun shining! I have the door wide open as the dog merrily plays outside. Today is supposed to get in to the 40′s and if it stays sunny it’ll be a glorious day. I’m seeing 50+ degree days in our weather forecast, which is delightful for February in Upstate NY. All of these things remind me that SPRING IS ON ITS WAY!
It won’t be long before the owner of my camp returns from Florida to start putting our place back together again. Friends and members will gather on evenings and weekends to set up chairs, clean everything, add a coat of paint where needed, prepare the pool and hot tub, and overall get camp ready for opening day. Those weeks before camp opens are some of my favorites of the year as there are people around once again and everyone is working together for a common cause.
There’s something special about preparing for opening day, there’s something special about the people in this camp…. there’s just something special about our AANR camps/ clubs. Yes, life is good.
