There was a lot of laughter on this trip. In my last post about Squam I just wanted to share some of the (many) lighter moments.
Travelling to the retreat in style…
You can imagine our faces when Leroy and his mobile home rocked up to pick Louise and me up from the bus station. Not quite the shuttle we had been expecting, but we were delighted to find it filled with tea and biscuits and friendly new faces.
Wondering how apt it was that my cabin should be down this road…
Feeling lucky to share a cosy cabin with such wonderful ladies (Nina, Sylvia, Jayne, Kirsten, Brittany + Steph who is not in the picture)
Getting lost in the forest in the middle of a torrential downpour late at night with six girls laughing madly (our cabin was called ‘Wayonda’ for a very good reason). It looked something like this...
Admiring the work of fellow artists Andrea and Jess at the Visions of Squam exhibition at Mocha Rising in the cute nearby town of Centre Sandwich
Thank you Squam Lake for having us, and thank you Elizabeth for bringing us together
