My legs hurt. My dog had an amazing time. Our granddaughter had an amazing time.
We all had a great time. It was wonderful seeing family again. I love my aunt and uncle. My cousins are a lot of fun.
And the wilderness?
I understand the call my uncle feels, to be out in his Tranquility Camp, enjoying the wild, the peace of the forest, and the knowledge that one can live by one’s own means, if one so chooses.
It’s a romantic life, and not one I’m destined for, but hey, I was raised in cities and cornfields.
Still, it feels like home, and that’s the best reason to keep coming back.
