Again this week, some rapidly passing storms, but also some lovely low-humidity, sunny days! We were at Camp Plymouth State Park on Wed & watched the clouds rolling in. It was funny to see most folks were not panicking. Someone with us checked her phone & announced that the storm was currently in W Rutland, so we had time for ice cream before running for cover. I wondered if others had found similar information because it seemed that everyone lingered & then packed up at once. We weren’t in the car very long when the heavens opened up, but by the time we reached home – it was over!
We had a very nice Tyson Ladies Aid picnic at the lovely home of Pam Bruno on Round Pond. Lots of good food & a few guests. Ann Mick was one, then Ann Rose & Carol Coyne each brought their granddaughters!
Echo Lake almost seemed crowded with boats on Saturday. We took our sailboat out & as we were gliding along, we passed Annie Clark & 2 friends in a canoe. The little beach at the end of Gold Brook is almost non-existent these days, but a few paddle boats came to rest on the thin margin of sand & went exploring. A couple of fishing boats were on the water, but it seemed a bit hazardous with the power boats & water skiers all out there enjoying the day.
I understand that Presidential High School Economic Debate that took place at the Notch recently was both lively & well-attended. There will be another one on 8/1 for those who are interested. Of course Old Home Days will be 8/2, so mark your calendars.
