The Force is strong with this one.
(This is not a trick shot;
his balance is just that good.)

At this time of year,
the Force we're talking about
is the pull of the tides on Cape Cod.

This latest heat wave is just the cue we need to head north, 
so as of Sunday we'll be holed up in the woods, 
engaged in some serious old-fashioned fun.

We would love it if you felt moved to send us snailmail at camp. Every year the camp staff at North of Highland is amazed by how much fabulous mail we get, and of course we are delighted with every note, so please keep it up! If you're reading this between July 6th and July 16th, 2012, here's your big chance to make our day at camp!

Send a little note (and/or dark chocolate!) to:
Riendeau-Krause campers, site 35-C
c/o North of Highland Campground
52 Head of the Meadow Road
P.O. Box 297
North Truro, MA 02652-0297

If you'd prefer, you can call the camp and ask them to leave us a note on the camp message board; these messages are also a big thrill. (Did we mention that we'll being going "cold turkey" with regards to email?) That number (good from July 8th through the 19th or so) is 508/ 487-1191, and their office hours are pretty much all day with the exception of meal breaks from noon-1pm and again from 6-7pm.

We know that you'd love to be there with us; please do stop by if you're in the neighborhood! Otherwise, let us know you're thinking about us and we'll dedicate an afternoon's worth of laze-about reading or a morning of boogie boarding to you

And a special thank you to the excellent neighbors who are keeping watch on our little house until we get back. Watch this space for details on how to send mail to Mr. D at Camp Onas, where he'll be heading just as soon as we wash all the laundry we'll bring back from the Cape.
