Another great day at scout camp. I'm feeling tired today which I think is pretty normal for me at the beginning of camp. Sleeping in a new place, with different sounds, etc. Last night I went to sleep hearing loons calling as they flew overhead, and then woke up to the same sound. The temperature was cool last night, which I loved. Another sound last night was the breeze in the leaves in the trees; it sounded like rain without the wet. Cool. I'm using a new tent this year - last year's developed leaks after 10 years in the sun. This years' is a very similar tent -slightly different dimensions, and different windows style. On sale at Dicks for $79. It was super dark last night. I'm sure has nothing to do with the age of my eyes, but walking up the road was difficult without a flashlight. I did notice there was no moon. Lots of amazing stars though.
Breakfast was pancakes and sausage, lunch was coldcuts sandwiches (new meat slicer!!).
I assisted with fishing MB this morning, and went out in the boat afterward to scout fishing spots. We had a very nice church service planned and led by Corwin. He did a great job and it was an extra treat to have him playing his guitar while we sang.
I was reminded this morning about an interesting bird call I heard last year and now am hearing again. I hope to try recording it and sharing with my walking partner who is a bird expert. I'm sure it's a very common Minnesota bird, but I don't hear it in Eden Prairie.
I managed to get in two one-minute naps this morning. I'm off to try for a bit more substantial.
More probably tonight.
