‘Getting knocked down is not the issue; it’s how you get up that is’.
Today has been recovery day, and by that I mean a relaxing, unstructured play-day. We woke up late (a la Lazy Day), but then we did cabin clean-up (not something we would do on a Lazy Day). We have to keep clean if we want canteen, or, mores to the point, if you want to go to DQ. The cabins that make 50 points on inspection get to go to DQ in Eagle River by way of a reward for all their hard work in the mornings. There are around five cabins – at the moment – who have the opportunity to make it to the ice-cream store.
This afternoon the promised rain never came so we went to the beach/lake for the first time in quite a few days. There was plenty of supervision but very little structure, so the boys could do pretty much as they pleased. The paddle boards and sail boats, windsurfers and tubers were out in force and a good time was had by all.
Our sailors competed in the annual Kawaga regatta today. I’m not aware of the results as of writing, but I will bring them to you in due course.
I’m taking the opportunity to write this as we party with the girls from Camp Marimeta. We have turned the mess hall into a ‘night club’ for a couple of hours and after that it will be bedtime.
Another great day in a great place, and all is well, so safely rest.
