Summer 2016

One blog a season is better than none. The spring and early summer were filled with family and events like Mother’s Day and funerals and special time with granddaughters. I have also submitted poems to many journals with little luck. Back to the writing board…

Tulip time in Ontario was wet and vivid. I traveled to Ontario with my sister and re-connected in many ways. She was a guide, a nurse, and a friend and of course a dear sister. I loved our early morning swims in the Hilton Hotel swimming pool in Ottawa and was awed by the Parliament Building there.  We took the last tour before the doors were closed for ten years of renovations.

I was introduced to amazing water parks inside and out of lodges and to zip lines that zipped so fast I didn’t see my granddaughters sliding by. I fell in love with man-made flowing rivers that took tubes and me lazily through the water. Short water slides were a thrill though steep  rides in a raft or a tube made me dizzy. My granddaughters thought otherwise – the steeper and faster the better. Try Camelback Lodge in the Poconos as it’s new, clean, and fun and best of all the people are friendly. Be prepared for the unexpected if you are a grandparent…
