This is where we have been and what we have been doing all week. Sand, cold lake water, freezie pops in day-glo colors, towering pines, mid-afternoon champagne, and evening canoe rides. It was utterly perfect. So perfect we even contemplated how we could just take out a second or third mortgage on our home, then we could apply for all the credit cards we could get our hands on, and finally, when the money ran out, beg the owners of Ludlow's Island to let us stay a little longer if we help out with chores around the island like raking the sand and cleaning the boats...but then we sobered up and realized Beeper had to start kindergarten tomorrow and the cat would starve to death if we did not come back at some point. So, here we are--back in the city. Until next year.
