The jet skis were once again a focus of water activity and arguably some of the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
My friend, Laurie Vanderlee (left) and I enjoyed a spin when she and her family camped down the river.

Volunteering at the Soup Kitchen was a highlight of the summer for me. I met wonderful people and saw the great work that service groups, churches and local businesses contribute by sponsoring the weekly lunches. Not only do they help people in the community by feeding those going through hard times, but the Soup Kitchen also provides an important venue for young and old to visit each other. Gary and Jeannie (below) gave me thoughtful gifts and the invitation to come back again next year which I certainly plan on doing.
Heather Moe (below) proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks when she taught me how to knit! This is a perfect hobby for me to take anywhere I go, and while I can't envision me doing anything more complicated than scarves or pot holders, I'm enjoying learning something new.
