After getting home very late from the fireworks
on Friday night, we looked forward to our
early wakeup so we could go to the race.
We kind of jumped out of our beds and
skipped down to the main cabin, singing
cheery songs all the way.
(it was something like that)
We all made it on the bus and to the race
with plenty of time to enjoy our Backdoor
Donuts and pose for some pix.
Sky of blue and sea of green….
Here’s a nice “before” photo.
Chris didn’t have a pistol to start the race,
but he was still excited to push the magic button.
Off they go.
Here comes runner #1. Why, it’s our own Wes.
And here are our first camp runners.
Michael and Gui.
One of them is pretty sweaty.
And there’s a fellow from the Vineyard Sound.
That’s a pretty formal running outfit.
Here’s Team Athena.
Peter is our first camper in.
Hey, that looks like Wes with him.
I guess Wes needed some more exercise.
And there is a cheering section for all the runners.
After a nap back at camp, it was time to go on a
scavenger hunt to find all the campers’ clothes.
Then it was pack, beach, dinner and sunset
It was a beautiful way to end the session.
And so it goes.
We’re sad, and exhausted, and already talking
about next summer.
Hope you enjoyed following our
adventures this summer.
