Just a few pics form yesterdays Pond Tour/Fund Raiser. Hopefully we can all enjoy a little Summer this next week, after all its almost Independence Day!

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”

~ John Lubbock

Enjoy this Summer Day!

Summer is Here!

The headline says it all! Today, Tuesday June 21st 2022, is the Summer Solstice – The longest day of the year!

Im going to sit outside and watch the Sun go down tonight! Tomorrow starts the shortening of days… Leading us towards the Autumnal Equinox, aka: Fall!

Memorial Day Weekend 🇺🇸 The Start of Summer…

Yes its finally here! Memorial weekend is always the weekend that kicks off the Summer Season! Camping, Hiking, Cookouts, Vacations, Boating, etc…!

Scout knows what summer means to her… Hot Dogs 🌭 at the marina 😊

But, we can never forget who and why we are celebrating! Memorial Day is not a day to thank soldiers or saliors for their service – Thats Veterans Day!

Memorial Day honors and mourns our brave men and women who gave their lives in service to our country! Its our duty to remember that all this happiness and freedom that we enjoy comes from the blood and sacrifice of soldiers who fought and died for all our freedoms! And its our duty to teach this to our children and grandchildren… Freedom isn’t Free!

“By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
   Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
   And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
   Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
   Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
   We set today a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
   When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare
   To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
   The shaft we raise to them and thee”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

God Bless America 🇺🇸
