Yesterday I took mom on a drive to Long Barn to their cabin where Joyce met us. Mom and dad have owned that cabin for about 43 years, and before that we used to go to a nearby cabin my grandfather built that is now owned by my cousin. So this area holds many, many fond and funny memories for us.
It has been a long time since mom has been to the cabin and hardly ever without dad. We had a beautiful day reminiscing, then lunch on the deck followed by a drive to nearby Pinecrest Lake.
We had to laugh. The only other people on the beach were three other ‘old’ ladies (one of which kindly offered to take our picture).
We’re looking forward to going back to the cabin when Linda can join us… maybe even getting mom back in a fishing boat!
