Ok – the summer sucked. There is no way to sugar-coat it. We had 5 days of sunshine in August, which was marginally better than July. I had to go to Vancouver for a reminder of what summer felt like. How weird is that!?
On the plus side, I enjoyed quite a lot of friend-time and had lots of visitors. And we played a lot of that “effing game”.
If next year is like this, you’d better hide your goats…. And your virgins. I’ve got the sacrificial altar all planned.
August 22nd was my final day at Grundy. I got up early, packed the last bits into the Beast and put on my bathing suit for one last swim across the lake. The gods had other plans. It started to rain, then to rain harder and then they really let loose the torrents. They also lowered the temps by 10 degrees. After waiting for 2 hours, I gave up and drove away. Goodbye Grundy! See you next year.
