As mentioned, I went to Squam at the beginning of the month. For those of you unfamiliar with the Squam Art Workshops, I invite you to think of a summer camp for crafty adults. You're in an idyllic setting in the middle of New Hamphsire, you share a cabin with fellow campers, you're fed three meals a day in a dining hall (they ring a bell at mealtimes), you make all kinds of great stuff, and you do a regular tick check. Clearly I loved it.

The cabins were rustic but comfy. I only had four other roommates and had opted for a single room for my first time (the cabin had three double-occupancy rooms and one single) . Each cabin that was on the lake had its own dock, and each had fireplaces whose wood boxes were refilled each day. We also had an actual ice box, which was also checked each day and refilled as necessary. They harvest the ice from the lake in the winter and keep it in, yes, ice houses all summer.
