Camp Yumoh!

Camp Yumoh! That’s the name that our friend Jaye gave to our latest sojourn with her and Perry to the Oak and Spruce Resort in the Berkshires, an RCI time-share property.

Why Camp Yumoh? Because we four (Michael of course our fourth) spent a week on the “tomato, corn and ice cream” diet whether sunning by the pool or painting in the field. I tried my hand at pastels while Michael did barbecue duty. We made many forays to the Taft Farm to buy the aforementioned tomatoes and corn along with fresh picked berries and peaches, and Jaye and I even “liberated” our own apples from overflowing trees on a neighboring hillside. We found a fabulous Vietnamese restaurant and gift shop Truc Orient Express in Egremont — very authentic, although the the portions are rather small, and, of course, treated ourselves to a romantic dinner at the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge.

Michael, ever the intrepid walker, strode into Stockbridge each day to read the New York Times in a rocker on the
Inn’s porch. I did my own “constitutional” –walking each day from the cabin to the pool with a few aqua-aerobic exercises thrown in.

We must be doing something right because we had the best week of the summer, blue skies — with a few clouds for meditative purposes — by day, and cool, starry nights provided great sleeping weather.

We continued our Yumoh! adventure on the trip home with a stop at Mom’s on the River in South Egremont for cinnamon French toast with pure maple syrup. We even bought some syrup at Turner farm home to sloe-eyed Guernsey cows.

Same time next year? We hope-oh.
