On this eve of the 4th of July, Camp Oma today was all about watching more World Cup soccer and doing more kayaking. Today we invited friends, the Hennins, over to kayak with us. Jeanne, the mother, arrived with her two sons, Leo and Cole, as well as their small inflatable kayak. Ollie and Sam went out in separate kayaks while we were waiting for the Hennins to arrive and explored some new territory. Then when the Hennins did arrive, Ollie and I watched from the dock as Jeanne, Sam, and Leo went out in single-man kayaks and Jonah and Cole went in the two-man. When they returned, it looked like the armada was descending upon us. And then the boys engaged in a water battle on land. It was an afternoon of sun and fun and even though I didn’t kayak, I’m exhausted. Heather ran a 4.5 mile course from her house to here via the beach. It was her first long run since the hernia surgery and she admitted that it was harder than she expected. Once she entered the neighborhood, I drove to pick her up. Then she left in my car with Sam to take him to Woods Hole for drum lessons. A little later, Jed picked up Ollie, Jonah, and myself. He took Ollie and I to their house and traveled on with Jonah for a 6 pm annual physical. It was another long day, but Heather invited me to stay for Tuesday Tacos and I accepted. We are still working on plans for the 4th, but we know that the plans for the day will include participating in a Woods Hole mid-day parade and going to the beach to watch fireworks tomorrow night.
