SIC Retreat 2016

The Sisterhood in Christ Retreat in the summer of 2016 was held at my friend’s farm in Indiana.

We left Chicago Thursday afternoon, and got caught in a huge storm, so we stopped at a Culver’s for lunch. It rained and rained and rained, so we decided to wait out the storm with frozen custard.

The next day we went canoeing. It was a beautiful day, not at all like the one before. We canoed for a couple miles, and it was a bit of a struggle for a duo that had no idea how to paddle correctly, but in the end it was a lot of fun!

beach at Bass Lake

That night we visited Bass Lake near sunset. We took of our shoes, got in the water, and enjoyed the last lights of the day.

We took photos, and then someone pulled out a picnic blanket, so we all sat down and sang worship songs. It was really wonderful.

We enjoyed the last bit of the sunset, and then headed back to the cabin, where we had a bonfire. Our lovely weekend was almost over, but we were going to make it last as long as we could.
