Back to Basics

This morning we instituted a moratorium on screens at Fry Lodge. So, Henry and Ruby had to make do with old-fashioned toys, like tether ball. They somehow survived. Henry perhaps got the last word when, as we set out to check the crab pot, my outboard motor stopped working. So, I took us out into Mud Bay the old-fashioned way, by rowing. Henry was pretty amused. He took pictures of me struggling with the oars most of the way, shouting “stroke, stroke!”


We ended the night teasin’ the flame by the campfire. Kristine invented a new marshmallow variation: nectarmallow (roasted nectarines combined with roasted marshmallow). As with most of Kristine’s concoctions, I highly recommend this treat.
