In case you’re wondering – it’s the scout camp on Green Bay – and if you peer through the mist of Lake Cecebe you can see a white boathouse across the bay…that was the Eastland cottage. If I seem a bit obsessed with this place it is because some of my greatest childhood memories were here….and well, memories are a wonderful thing!
At the top of the post, you’ll see a photo of my Nanny Eastland with her daughters – all five of them. The cottage is where they all went on vacation and I was there – all summer with them and their families. My uncle Jim and I use to take the boat across the bay and catch garter snakes at the scout camp as it seemed deserted most of the summer. Lots of memories here… and yes even as I type this I’m smiling!
So what summer memories do you have?
