Howdy doody, HVC!! Hummingbird here! The days are getting shorter up here in the Valley and I can feel a chilly breeze ruffling my wee feathers as the winds a’blowin’ from the top of Tipi Hill all the way down to the shores of Ledge Pond and over to the Brumby arenas!
Although we can’t hear the sound of hundreds of children’s laughter these days, the Valley is far from silent! Never a dull moment here, Peter and the Crew are working on several projects around camp! Let’s take a look!
Carmi, Elise, Celie, and Luke the Dog built a new H Dock for the lake, and spent an afternoon installing it together! Luke helped out with some of the ruff work!!!! (hehehehe get it?? Ruff?? He’s a dog!!!)
Meanwhile up at Brumby our crew has been hard at work maintaining the trail and fixing up the road!! I don’t think any of our horsies would say neighhhh to that! (HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!)
Speaking of smelly things we wouldn’t say neigh to, check out what’s going on at the Barn! Our crew is doing the important doodie (I am slapping my birdie knee!) of spiffing up the bathrooms! It’s a little stinky now but we’ll all be thanking the toilet heavens come summertime when 300+ people use those rooms daily!
That’s what’s up here! All of this hard work is set against the backdrop of brilliant Autumn colors! Check out pictures of the beautiful scenery up here these days, golly it sure is idyllic! A bird could fly one lap around this camp and count over 100 different colors…. well… only if a bird had human retinas with adequate cones to interpret all the colors it saw…. alas, a bird can still appreciate the Fall 🙂
Be thankful for your retinas this season!
Humming the tune of Autumn in New England (that’s my version of Autumn in New York by Ella Fitzgerald, but it’s all about MAINE!!),
Ps: tune in for a special Halloweeny blog post in a few weeks!
Did I scare ya?? 🙂
