Forty-one years ago.
It was the summer of 1979 and I joined a youth group who went into the woods outside Kamloops for a campfire and sing some songs.
She was “just a girl at a campfire” and I didn’t say hello even or catch her eye.
She was “just a girl at a campfire” but a few days later I dreamt about her, but couldn’t recall the dream.
My friend, Randy, was a fleek water skier and he invited me to join him water skiing on the river. When Randy drove up to pick me up, in the back seat of his car was that girl, the one from the campfire. Playing matchmaker, Randy pressured us to sit in the back together, which was a hardship I was happy to endure, with that girl.
A sunny day, on a dock with that girl,
the one I saw at a campfire, not a date, more than a date; a test and I wrote about on my blog before – you can read it here by clicking.
I have written before about the significance of August 6 before
including this post five years ago. Click here for that one if you may.
I love all the pictures in that post. ♥
Happy 1st date Anniversary to that girl from the campfire!
Fairy tales can come true
It can happen to you if you’re young at heart
For it’s hard, you will find
To be narrow of mind if you’re young at heart
