This summer we were not able to do our usual trip due to too short a window of time and a two and a half day driving time up to where we would need to start - we should have made it down the Nottaway to James Bay but couldn't fit it in. We were, however able to go on a short, tame trip - not even quite a camping trip due to a lack of rain, bugs, and inclimate temperatures. We went 60-70 miles through a couple lakes and down a river with a bunch of dams on it into Lake Superior. It was just hot enough that we were able to go chunky dunking a couple times a day but the water was still quite "refreshing".
I spent last week at Camp Winnekeag in Massachusets for a equestrian instructor certification class so that I can work at Camp Cherokee this summer. My schedule was full from 5:30 A.M. to 10:30 P.M. but I was greatful for the knowledge I gained and the friendships I built with others who desire to use horses as an evangelism tool in our SDA summer camp programs.
