up north

What a fantastic slice of Americana we have participated in.
We laughed loudly around smoky bonfires on the beach at dusk.
We stuffed ourselves with cheep hot dogs roasted on open fires.
We indulged in too many gooey 'smores until our bellies hurt.
We endured small town fireworks from within a cloud of mosquitoes.
We frantically clung to fast bouncing inner-tubes behind slow moving speed-boats.
We cautiously made new friends-for-life.
We stayed up as late as we could and slept as long as they'd let us.
Then, we reluctantly returned to the asphalt of the city, road-weary and life-refreshed. Our skin - a crispy shade of pink.
I can't wait to do it again!
