Sportsman's Daughter

My oldest is once again working as a Counselor at a YMCA camp on the Eastern Shore. This Summer she is a water-ski instructor and works on the Waterfront with the kids. She is having a tough Summer in some respects because there have been some serious thunder storms that swept thru the region and the camp sustained some serious damage. Her last session campers were boy-crazy and this made her cabin duties an adventure.

However, she still loves the place and the people. This weekend she was home for time off with 3 co-counselors. One of the girls was from Wales...the Camp has many foreign exchange counselors and it really enhances the experience for all this kids. The girls enjoyed a cook-out with us and we took them to see the new Batman film. They departed bright and early Sunday to get back for the start of a new session and I miss my daughter already! We will get some time together in the Adirondacks in a few weeks but she leaves for her Sophmore year of College shortly after we get back.

I love this photo of her sent to me by one of her captures her million kilowatt smile and her love of water skiing and watersports...she is a great kid and a joy.

What a beautiful young woman - that photo says "Summer," doesn't it? Glad to hear she's had a good summer and that you'll soon be together again for vacay.
