In our district of the Wesleyan Church, we have a wonderful tradition called Family Camp. Family Camp is like Youth Camp only for the whole family. Babies to Grannies - - - you'll find them ALL at Family Camp. In fact, you'll find Grannies that USED to be babies at Family Camp - - - it's a LONG time tradition.
Vivienne, you'll totally "get" this.
I'll be doing several Family Camp posts - - - but this is just the intro so to speak.
For years and years (I have NO CLUE how many) I served on the Family Camp Committee helping plan and conduct the camp. Our family "lived" out here for the entire eight days of camp. Then the Family Camp dates changed and landed right on top of our Wisconsin vacation - - - so for the past four or five years we've missed camp altogether.
This year camp is THIS WEEK and we're home from Wisconsin, so fisherhubby hauled our camper out here for me Tuesday evening and last evening I came out to move in for the rest of the week and weekend.
When I drove up last night this is what I found:
HELLO!!! Someone had parked right on top of my camper carpet - - - in my LIVING ROOM so to speak.
Perhaps it would look better from the other side - - -
Nope. Not a bit better.
And this was my lovely view as I stepped out the front door.
I was flabbergasted. You heard me - - - flabbergasted, perfectly good word which describes perfectly what I was.
Who would do such a thing, and why???? In all my years of camping I've never returned to any campground anywhere to find a CAR in my living room.
I hoped it was a joke.
I hoped the owners would come back and remove said car - - - - CAREFULLY.
Turns out it wasn't a joke - - - it was a bit of a misunderstanding - - - and the best part - - - the car DID go away rather shortly after I arrived and I now have a more CONVENTIONAL view out my front door.
And with that - - - I will leave you with the ANTICIPATION of more camp posts to come.
