We are officially back in NJ from Maine. We started our vacation visiting friends at the MIKA weekend event at the More To Life campgrounds. Friday evening Rebecca Pushard and Josh Buck earned their fourth degree black belts. Senseis Jodi, Clem and Mat earned their third degree black belts. Saturday morning after a bo and sai seminar, I biked the 20 miles to Castle Island Camps through the rolling (?) hills of the country side. The week at Castle Island consisted of eating three great meals a day, kayaking, biking, fishing, relaxing and spending great times with family and friends. Friday morning Fayth, Elizabeth and I biked to Mt. Vernon for a cool drink before returning to the island. Friday evening’s heat prompted us to leave after dinner for home, knowing there was not going to be much sleep even if we left before breakfast. Moose, our German Shepherd, was at Happy Tails Resort . . . and was said to have played nicely with the other dogs. He is now home chasing his Frisbee before it becomes too warm. My catching up at the dojo is done and I am now going to finish my chores before resting a bit. Thanks to my friends at MIKA, Castle Island and here at the dojo for making it possible for Linda and me to do our annual vacation, re-energize and return to start kicking . . .
