We came back: exhausted, sore, covered in bruises, sunburned in hilarious patterns, and Small Craft Safety certified. I feel proud about it.

I’m glad to be home at my sweet park. I loved the other one, but I missed it here.

The people who have lived here know there’s magic.

The people who haven’t lived here figure it out.

The woods have my heart, but now the water calls me, too.
