I have 2 more weeks left of my summer vacation. In a couple of weeks I will be back to work and fun is over. Well, not really. I will surely have fun working with kids again. But working for 12 hours straight is really tough, so to speak. But it is what it is. I just want to spend the last few weeks of summer with my Sweetest doing some fun things.
As a tradition, we went to Byron again for the Nth time. We have been going to Byron, Maine since I migrated here and it was like a tradition for us now. Doing it for 7 years, I kinda look forward going there every summer because for a "person of habit" it's in my summer system now. Summer will not be summer without spending a weekend in Byron.
So we went to Coos Canyon again. Camp for 2 consecutive weekends and yes, did some gold panning and prospecting.
My Sweetest checking the sluice.
Panning the dirt.
I'm not a gold digger. My husband is. LOL He loves digging for gold or dredge for it, is the most appropriate term since he uses a dredge. My only role in this activity is to help him carry all his gadget to the river, cook our meal and eat.
So what do I do when my Sweetest is dredging and I'm done cooking and eating?
I pick berries.
Explore the trail and enjoy the scenery around me.
