Lake Hope

Camping!
I did help for a little bit, but then I got distracted...
I couldn't tell you what any of them are, but I am beginning to think that the world of fungus might just be as fascinating as the world of arthropods...
After swimming in the lake, we had some Irish dancing with mandolin...then supper, then the most important ingredients for a successful camping trip:  campfire and marshmallows.
I don't seem to be capable of selecting decent tasting graham crackers (really, there is a history there.), so we ditched the idea of the traditional s'more and replaced the cracker with, well, more chocolate, of course!!! It was not bad, though a little messy(er) to eat.
Ani says this is her favorite view of the world, and she filled her eyes with it this trip.
Some unexpected excitement for us the next morning - keys locked in the car and a visit from an officer with super cool tools to unlock the car...Ani is demonstrating for us.  
After a quick trip across the lake in a rowboat - the girls' first time in a boat other than the ferry! - we headed to our friends' home in the woods nearby.  
There was amazing food (as always) and lots of entertainment
A lovely couple of days "away" - not relaxing so much as just good time together...we're all mosquito-bitten and tired, but we had a really good time...
