August 2nd

It was a bit of a rainy and low-key day for us here at Ak-O-Mak to rest up after the busy week that we had.  It was a typical morning with the normal early bird, breakfast, inspection and then morning classes.  The morning was followed by lunch and then a long mandatory rest hour to allow everyone to catch up on some sleep.  By the end of rest hour the rain had started and everyone put on their rain boots and rain jackets to head up to the mainhouse where we were fortunate enough to have Laura Young, the author of “Solo but Never Alone, Swimming the Great Lakes”, here to talk to us about her book.  Laura gave a fantastic talk about her experiences writing her book and interviewing numerous famous swimmers who have completed crossings of the Great Lakes, many of them Ak-O-Makkers, including our very own Jocelyn Saunders.  After the talk everyone enjoyed a “cookout” in the mainhouse due to the rain before heading down to the cabins to prepare lip syncs.  We are all looking forward to campfire tomorrow when we will get to see all of the dances performed.
