Today the students went canoeing on the lake in Keswick. Jeff Salyer, who teaches one of their online courses, is visiting from Lee and accompanied them on the water, along with the canoe guides. I chose to hike around the lake and take in the scenery. I found a bench on which to sit for a few minutes. This bench is one popularized on campus from the stories of another Lee professor, Bob Barnett. Later I enjoyed some tea while reading Wordsworth and, at the restaurant, ran into Indy, a student who also chose not to canoe. She was doing homework. Before the students left for the water, Neely asked me if I would "babysit" her stuffed llama. I'm still not sure what that was about, but I believe it has some connection back to campus. Of course I agreed and decided to make the best of it. I had fun strategically placing the stuffed llama in photo at various places along the hike. The students had a fun time on the water and I had an enjoyable time of reflection. This is a beautiful area.
