Summer Camp, South Hero, Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA

"Summer Camp" isn't just for kids. After our photographer's weekend was over (which was chronicled in this blog over the past two weeks), we stopped off on the way home for a brief visit with friends at their Lake Champlain camp. The New England tradition of keeping a summer "camp" is alive and well here. (Many/most camps might also be called summer cottages for those of you not familiar with the term as it applies here).

The lake setting offers the full range of water activities - the only thing missing is fine beach sand. And yes, the docks are disassembled and removed each fall to protect from the ravages of winter ice.

Glorious early morning light to start another summer day in beautiful New England. A "camp" is different from "camping" - no tents, mud, nor sleeping on the ground - it's very civilized and appealing for those of us "of a certain age."
