family vacation sans me
My whole family is taking a vacation this week. They rented a cabin someplace in the Maine woods on a lake between Belfast and Bangor. They've been swimming, hiking, canoeing and building campfires. My dad and brother spent the first part of the week there and now my mother and sister are there too. Way to take a vacation without me!
My brother and sister called me last night sitting around a campfire toasting marshmellows. I'm jealous!! I'd love to be sitting by a campfire on the edge of a lake among pine trees! No internet, no email, no work to do, no laptop (although cell phones make the whole thing different than it was when I was a kid- we never had cell phones sitting around a campfire). Just a super-rustic cabin with 70s furniture and a porch. Granted, my preference would be for the cabin be on the ocean and not in the middle of nowhere on a lake, but still it just sounds so wonderful! Maybe next summer Jo and I will go in on this cabin-in-the-middle-of-no-where rental too, even if the idea of a "cabin in the woods" makes us think of the really creepy cabin in the movie Evil Dead. (see on the right).
I think next summer, although I'll be taking another prelim, I'll plan on spending some time both at the ocean, and in a cabin in the woods...
