Where is nona?

The extended nona-family -- parents, sisters, brothers-in-law, etc, etc -- are on our annual vacation.  We come to the same spot, the same time every year and have been doing so since 1972.  nona-sister-the-tall-and-skinny was unable to come this year, so I'll be posting daily photos of day-to-day vacation life.  Can anyone guess where we are?  I'll reveal the location at the end of the week.

Bell's ringing, come along to the dining hall.

Sunday night's dessert -- I opted for the cantaloupe.

It reminds me of Mackinaw Island.

Disneyland or Disney World?

I made my first visit to Mackinac Island this summer and it was amazing -- place out of time. So is the place Nona and I are at right now, but not quite so posh.

Ooh, can't remember the name but think this is the place featured on PBS. Is this the summer settlement original built by the Methodist
Church? They had a big meeting area surrounded
by bungalows.

methinks you're on a boat! but I have no idea where, and that's ok, because I'm from Canada and have been to like one place in the states!

Maybe one of the northern california family camps? I've been to berkeley tuolumne camp, and know that's not the dining hall... How about San Jose's camp? Or San Francisco's Camp Mather?

I don't know where you are, because in my world you eat cake on vacation :-).

Have fun!
