Northbrook

It’s the summer camp I never had as a kid, the one with the boathouse, a pool table, meals. A big stone porch. Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake. Friends you see every year. Canoeing, hiking, fishing, birding. Happy hour. And books. Lots of books.

Fellow 365ers: I’m off for a week but have posted ahead. I hope to return with 365s of Northbrook characters.

In the words of Christopher Robin:

Hope you have a great time. Weren't you wise to post ahead, and not fall hopelessly behind like some of us have?

Hope you are having a great time at summer camp! See you when you return. I myself am trying to get back into the swing of things after being away. It is tough catching up... I like your plan ahead attitude! ;-)

Planning ahead worked this time, but I didn't write a bunch like I'd hoped I would. AND I'm off again for a couple of weeks in September, at which time I'm pretty sure you'll notice a distinct lagging behind! (Northbrook was great, though...this morning I was kayaking by a family of loons [the bird, the bird].)

I like that you posted about a place. So many places figure prominently in our lives and make us who we are in the long run.

Bridgett: So true. This was my twentieth summer trip there. I can't seem to not go back.
