After my graduation in New York, my folks and I spent a few days up in the Catskills at Kate’s Lazy Meadow, this motel owned by Kate Pierson of the B-52’s. All the cabins had really sweet interiors–like polka-dotted lampshades and retro dinnerware. You can also rent out one of their old-school vintage Airstreams, parked right on the Esopus River. I fell into the river trying to get a good shot of a sea otter.
Every time we go camping, I insist on playing Scrabble.
My good friend from high school convinced me of the utility of owning a travel Scrabble one week when I visited him in Norfolk, Virginia. This travel Scrabble set is permanently stationed in the Westy. And yes, even though English is Juan’s second language, he regularly beats me at Scrabble. It’s still fun, though!
