Friday, August 7, 2009. The people really started arriving today, and the site is filling up. Though the overall count is still going to probably be less than previous years. There’s a “competing” campout down in Colorado earlier in the summer. From what I hear, it’s not something I’d want to go to.
Once again, the ladies came up to cook breakfast (Juline and Cindy, this time – it’s our turn tomorrow.) We had a delightful meal, then sat around outside chatting until nearly noon.
About 1 p.m., Scott and I and the ladies (you know, it get’s tiring typing all 4 names so often, so I just refer to them as ‘the ladies’) joined several other people for a drive over to North Crow Reservoir and went canoeing for a few hours. We spent a lazy afternoon enjoying the sun – and getting roasted – and the water and good camaraderie. Around 5 we headed back to camp.
Ray’s not feeling the best, so he spent the day napping, and Tom spent the day visiting friends campsites.
After dinner, it was time to head down to camp central for the evening program. There was the usual “Cinderfella” skit, and then the highlight of the evening began. Susie’s concert went fabulously. She’s really loved here at Rendezvous, and is considered a highlight of the week. We’re just proud she’s one of US! She had a little “heckling” from the audience, but she disarmed it really well. Heckling isn’t exactly the word, I’m not sure what is. The young man had a bit too much to drink and wanted to be her backup dancer. So, she let him come up and dance for one of the songs. It was really cute. And so was the dancer!
Scott and I were in bed by 10 p.m. And another day ends.
