Goodbye and Thank You, Gannon Camp

Goodbye garage – the site of my first kiss

Goodbye garden that my Mom and Dad will surely miss

Goodbye fireplace…you majestically beautiful hearth-y beast

Goodbye room where I laid my head and read hundreds of books at least

Goodbye porch and all of your dinners, cups of coffee, glasses of wine, and laughs

Goodbye water that I doggy paddled swam and hung out on the raft

Goodbye dock that I used to “troll for boys” according to my dad (with some success!)

Dock 3

Goodbye boathouse filled with all the water toys that I thought were rad

Goodbye road that I walked ran and drove

Goodbye camp…you will forever be my love

Camp 3

After nearly 34 years, the Gannon Camp will be no more except in our photos, a painting, and in our minds.  I’ve been blessed to call it “home” from the ages of 10 through 44.

Thank you, Gannon Camp, for all of the memories.  I will forever miss you and visit you as my “happy/safe space” when I need you.  May the new family that moves in have just half the fabulous times that we did.  They will be fortunate to enjoy all you have to offer.

I love you,

Laurie

P.S.  Yep.  I totally ripped off Goodnight Moon.  <insert teary-eyed smiley face>
