For many people Memorial weekend marks the beginning of the summer season, and for these people summer means camp. Camp has always been an important part to my summer, since I have spent every summer of my life at Worthley Pond. Now I have the pleasure of living at Worthley Pond 365 days a year. Now I get to enjoy the pond through all four seasons, but just one like so many other people. For me Memorial weekend marks the beginning of when I need to share my Pond with all of the summer residents. I'm sure that many of the other few year round Pond residences feel the same way as I do, and are looking forward to Labor day weekend, the official close of summer. So until Labor day I have to share my little slice of paradise with the summer residences, but I know that I get it back to myself come early September.
