Wonderful long weekend celebrating my 70th birthday & retirement & brother’s 68th. He & wife came from Seattle, his daughter’s new family from Ithaca, his son’s not so new family from Arlington, our daughter’s from Boston, & ourselves from Arlington. Grand total of 16 in comfort & unseasonably perfect weather. Hikes to White Oak Canyon, Old Rag Mountain, & much of the property line. Also much use of air hockey, cornhole, & hot tub, but most time in happy jabbering & admiring of the 4 month old & 2 week old. We could not have asked for a nicer place to gather, & we all appreciated the hard work that has made the place so special. The Spirit Dancer Lodge has indeed infused the love exchanged during these last 3 days.
