Summer Camp 2014

Did you love summer camp as a kid?   I sure did, and just because I've reached a 'certain age' is no reason I can't enjoy it all over again.   HA!  Every summer since retirement my friend, Becky, has come to stay a week with me.   It's a magical week because we are as carefree as we were when we were kids.  It's a week  full of all our favorite things ... crafts, shopping, travel, cooking (well, mostly eating:), new ideas for the house, and lots of late night talks.  We call these weeks our Summer Camp.  So here's a few peeks into our fun from this year ...
We took a little trip to Atlantic City - by way of Lewes, DE and a ferry ride to Cape May, NJ

Atlantic City was just what we were looking for -- bright lights, noisy casinos, fancy new hotels to tour,  walks on the boardwalk, views of the ocean - and good food!
Did I mention we like to eat?

Who knew a little bag of concrete could be so much fun! We made fire pots and stepping stones - decorated with flat marbles and flowers 
(I mean shards of broken mirror and glass)

On the last day we found time for one more project - fun painting - the Social Artworking way!!

Our favorite candy shop - Edie's Bees, in Lewes, DE - will have to wait til next year!
We'll probably spend the whole day here!

We pack a lot of fun into these short weeks!   
I LOVE it - and look forward to it every year!
Thanks, Becky, for a life long friendship!

P.S.   We are already working on ideas for next year :)


  1. Looks like a lot of fun - I am particularly fond of Cape May and love the Cape May-Lewes ferry.

  2. Hi Brenda. It's Joanie from the Feb. Ros seminars. If you ever get to Atlantic City or Cape May again, please give me a call. I would love to join you there as both are easy to reach for me. Your summer camp sounds fabulous!
