Views from our camps on the east coast of North Hero Island
Foreground Lake Champlain, background Green Mountains
The little blue camps themselves: kids left, grownups right. The lawn was positively enormous.
The shoreline near our camps, looking north
Stand of big trees at lakeside on the lawn
There were huge, gorgeous willows all over the islands, including this one on the lawn.
Kids on dock, contemplating going in...you can't really swim close
to the shore in Lake Champlain because there are too many weeds.
The water's warm, though, at least in late August.

Kids boogie boarding in the lake. That's Butler Island on the left; you can only get there by boat.
Liese hanging on so she's pulled by the rowboat
Bert and Steve's colorful kayaks, which they were
kind enough to lend us for the two weeks.
Megan, who came up from New York to stay with us
the second week, and Liese ready to go paddling.
There they go!
And now they're making some real progress!
Tim doing his summer reading in a very pleasant spot at the end of the dock.
Steve can blow perfect smoke rings.
The kids were MAJORLY impressed.
Megan enjoys spinning on the old-fashioned tree swing.
