Intern Files: End of week six

By Joe Pintaudi

Since my last post things have slowed down a bit, mainly due to what I think was a mild case of heat exhaustion and dehydration. I had no energy for about a day and a half.  It was a warm week here, and I think I just lost track and didn't drink enough water.

I did manage to get out and help clean out the loose hay in the top of the barn.  There was a yoga instructor who came up for the weekend to teach a workshop, and they needed the space.  Turns out that with all that hay off the floor it could be a pretty functional room for larger gatherings in the future.

We tried to make use of the hay. Some was used for ground cover in the garden: It helps keep the weeds down between the rows, and provides a more solid surface to walk on after a rain.

The weather is nice again.  After the rain on Friday, the temperature decreased.  Today was a relaxing day, and I am feeling much better. I even went out for a long swim, which I feel good about now—but about half way through I was really thinking it was a bad idea.

There is something really great about the water here that I can’t really find the words to describe.  My advice would be to just come here and experience it for yourself.
