That’s a Wrap on the First Half of Camp!

WARNING: THIS POST HAS LOTS OF PICTURES. IF IT TAKES A WHILE TO LOAD, JUST BE PATIENT. IT’S WORTH THE WAIT.

So, let’s rewind to yesterday, when we ended the second week of camp with a BANG! Well, maybe not a bang, but definitely with lots of singing and dancing! It was our First Ever/Best Ever Variety Show!

To be completely honest, some of us were pretty nervous about going on stage. But our friends and family from around the island came to support us. We got all dressed up, channeled our fearless founder Hellcat, and marched on stage!

We all were on the edges of our seats as we watched a VERY DRAMATIC wedding á la Melrose Place

Suffice to say that it got a little messy before the curtain was drawn…

We closed the night with our grand finale and an exuberant encore.

So we hugged it out, ate some ice cream, and headed to bed.

When we woke up today (Sunday) pretty much everyone had a strange taste in their mouths… the only way we could describe it was “bittersweet.” Why? Because today marked yet another changeover day. We said goodbye to some friends and hello to others. 

Once all the new folks were off the ferry and back at our home on Greenwood Ave, we rushed through unpacking and bolted for the beach! It was a lovely afternoon and we splashed around for HOURS.

Kevin is back and got to relaxing right away! IMG_0014

The relaxation continued tonight at the band concert in Vineyard Haven. We sat in Owen Park and enjoyed the end of the day with pretty sights and pretty sounds (and some people enjoyed pretty tastes at Mad Martha’s Ice Cream).
