Squam Camp Time

Finally! I just got to the point on the plane where they say, “ Now you may use your electronic devices and computers.” So, I reach for my laptop and away I write!

Squam Art Workshop was AMAZING! I had the most AMAZING time! My sister-in-law Lisa and I arrived on Wednesday afternoon, after being in New Hampshire for two days and soaking up the beautiful scenery and people! Anyway, the drive into the campsite was just breath taking. The winding road lined with beautiful majestic trees that have been there for years, the sun peeking through with wonderful sunshine as I look up and again I am so AMAZED at the beauty of all it as I say to Lisa, “Can you believe it? We are finally here! It looks just like the video on the SAW website that we viewed at least a dozen times and Lisa posted on her blog and wrote about months ago. What beauty and what a blessing! She agrees. We follow the signs all the way down toward the lake as we begin to see cars and women everyway! We get out and rush in to check in (we are so EXCITED we can barely contain ourselves) and we were greeted by the friendliest and well, most artsy looking women I have ever seen gathered in one place! We get our packets filled with all the information we need for our classes and scheduled times and locations for all activities, a map of the grounds and our meal tickets and we are off to the “SUMMIT” that’s the name of our cabin. We get inside after unloading ALL THAT LUGGAGE Lisa and I have brought with us and one of the girls asked; “ Did either one of you request a second room for your leather companions to stay in?” We just laugh and replied; “We know we have a problem when it comes to luggage and not wanting to be without anything we think we might need.” Make sense? I know it doesn’t to me either.

We get acquainted with the rest of our cabin mates, all friendly and all artsy. We get settled in, unpack all of our belongings and out the door we go to dinner. After dinner, off we went to the Opening Ceremony - Squam style. Yipee!!!

This was just the beginning of my wonderful experience at Squam Art Workshops. Please stay tuned for all the details I will be posting in the next few days. I am just now getting back in the grove, I must admit I needed to rest, but that hasn't happened it’s FULL SPEED ahead. Anyway, I am going through all the pictures and writing my posts that I will share with you shortly.

In the meantime, I hope all is well with whoever stops by.

Y’all come back now you hear…
