Bumpass 5-0

Standard

It finally stopped raining in Bumpass!

My sister filmed a couple more entries for Sundance.

Watch this one to the end. A star is born. Agents can contact me to book my husband.

Might as well just cut to the chase and hand over those Oscars now! : )

It was going to be hard to top a glorious week in Cape May, but by God we would try.

In Bumpass.

We are now in Bumpass, vacationing at Lake Anna…a manmade reservoir built to cool the reactors at the North Anna Nuclear Generating Station.

During the weekend we had at home between Cape May and Bumpass, we compulsively checked the weather forecast every half hour, hoping it would magically improve:

It hasn’t.

Never mind. We come from hardy stock. We would not be deterred by lousy weather.

On our first day in Bumpass, my sister and I decided to take a canoe out on the lake.

As we paddled along, we suddenly caught sight of our parents barrelling down the grassy slope.img_58932

Once,┬ámany years ago, my father rescued a drowning woman from raging waters. The incident is memorialized in the opening scenes of Tiger Pelt, my sister Annabelle Kim’s novel. My dad sprung into action again…

Stay tuned for more action and adventure in…Bumpass.

We weren’t sure why the little ones were laughing so hard…

Goodbye, Cape May! Goodbye, cute little Watermelon House, where my brother and his crew stayed, just down the street from our own beach house.
