Dear Mom and Dad,

I was having so much fun that I almost forgot to write.

The, Camp councilor said that I had better write or you would call.

Well, the weather is kinda off and on. Oh, we went to Old Orchard Beach, Maine and I swam in the Atlantic Ocean. That, day it was about 85 degrees out and I go a little Sun burned. So, the Camp Councilor made me put a T-Shirt on and noxzema cream. The, rides were great and I especially like the swinging Ark boat, roller coaster and the Parachute ride.

In the last 8 days we have gotten up at 3 am just once and that was to show us how beautiful Lewiston, Maine is a sun break. We visited by walking the Lewiston, Maine High School where they are just starting to clear the area around it of plants and trees. They, are building the largest first grade to eight grade school in the State of Maine cost 51.7 million And, It will hold 1000 students. My Councilor is worried that there will be to much traffic as all vehicles and foot traffic; converge, on the area schools in the mornings. They, will only be 50 yard between them. That, dangerous Mom.

We, went to the Library in Lewiston and saw a beautiful granite columned not used entrance on Park Street across from the local newspaper. Then, we walked through the Kennedy Park; watched, the Squirrels chasing after each other and lessened to the birds chirping to one another. My friend Jill made bird chirps. It was funny.

We, were given a snack of pop tarts and milk as we had not had breakfast yet. Breakfast is at 6 am and this morning is pancakes with whip cream and peaches. Can’t wait.

Oh, after our shack we continued on to Walnut St. there we saw a gorgeous once Catholic Church. I think it was called St. Patrick’s it has been turned into a Bed and Breakfast by a individual named Andrew; so, they would not have to tear it down. They have wedding there and maybe someday I can get married in this beautiful revitalized once church facility. Of, course this is some years away.

We, walked up Walnut and saw six police cars and a fire truck. Dad, the fire trucks are lime green-yellow in color. I thought most were red ? We, took another street back to Camp just in time for breakfast and a nap.

Oh mom, my Camp Councilor said that they are thinking of change the name of the city. Why, would they change the name of such a beautiful city and one that is under rebuilding as there are so many buildings with new porches and some are being cleaned out from the insides out and rebuilt. It’s like that word you taught me Dad “Renaissance” is happening here. Good word, Dad.

I will write to let you when I am catching the bus.

Love, Alexa

Feed the fish, Dad.


“SUMMER CAMP”; Lewiston, Maine this year; 2017. Dad, Bakery still operating on corner of Pierce St. and Pine St., selling “Pot” pies”. With, must be “Hot” girls on corner of streets beginning in “HO” ?

Summer Camp, is now over thanks to the creator!

So you are probably asking Dad. What Lewiston, Maine Summer Camp was like for me your little girl in the final week in Lewiston, Maine ?

Well, it was quite by chance when we went out later in the day compared to the time of mornings we had been going out for a walk. We started out from the Lewiston Summer Camp to the Lewiston’s, Simard – Payne Park and the Kennedy Park in Lewiston, Maine Inner City.

Thus, both are somewhat in the Inner City of Lewiston, Maine and we camper’s love riding our bicycles on the newly established bicycle lane’s that the City of Lewiston has instituted with the help of the “Rainbow Bicycle Shop”; on Lisbon Street, Lewiston, Maine.

After, dropping ourselves off at the Kennedy Parks on numerous other days.

We the group enjoyed the Simard-Payne Park ( dedicated to Officer’s that gave all) as a refreshing change to Kennedy Park and the sights of the day in the Inner City.   To which there were like the, “Ladies of the Night having a convention under one of the Police camera’s on Bartlett Street that ocurrs in the earliest of morning and throughout the day.

Then, the cruising by of all sorts of vehicle as the ladies promenade all their virtues in open.

And then the fresh aroma of, “Cannabis Bread Sticks” from the must be bakery shop on the corner of Pierce Street and Pine Street, Lewiston, Maine. This with few “Cops” in sight on numerous day.

While, on my ride home to camp I felt dizzy on occasions and told Camp adviser she should buy some of that “Cannabis Stick Bread” for us.  As, we all had the munchies for some reason ?

We, were especially taken aback by all the foot “trafficking” as people of all assorted nationalities; ducked and weaved in the Inner Lewiston, Maine City.

Some, jumping over fences, some fitting through the smallest of crack between buildings and fences and some disappearing in vacant building and basements.

My group was going to ask; if, we could play this form of “Hide and Seek”.  But, we was to frightened to ask.

  • – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – .

The group was especially taken aback by the events in these Public Parks on the following Saturday that was allow a permit for just $12.00 a day by the City of Lewiston, Maine.

One, being the “Country Music Concert”.

I then went to another gathering of I guess “Liberals” as their were multi-colored flags and other on community unity (Black Live Matter).  Dad, we all know that. But, would all “Culture’s Lives Mater” be more appropriate as we are all more that one race.  Some, have more that two races that make them up.  You, told me this dad.

There was a lady there that was upset. Perhaps, it was our bicycles that we were riding. I do not know. But, I hope she enjoys the rest of her summer without complaining at me for a change in direction.

Oh, we had a make-up-game in the Park with our new friends who were Somali, Angolans and Congolese.

 All, in all it was an exciting Summer only do to the diverse nation multiracial community european football game with players from (Portuguese Angolans, Congolese, from the Republic of the Congo, Chinese, Somalia people all three groups.

The Island of Djibouti who are Somalian speak french like you Dad, B And, some Japanese played too.  Though, I thought they were Korean.

We, lost the game. But, still had fun.

It, was the only pleasure I had on my journey; on my way through Lewiston, Maine on our bicycles that we will remember for life  And, all, the girls agreed.

For, our new friends added a sense of balance through religious belief and perseverance in their difficult transition living circumstances.

Perhaps, you Dad had to overcome some of their problems; as, you were a first generation Franco – American.

And, I to learned a lot from their plight Dad.

Hope you enjoyed my version of vacation at Summer Camp Lewiston, Maine.

P. S.

Dad, don’t forget to pick me up. I do not want to be the kid on 2 and a 1/2 men TV show; who, waits in the rain for his dad to pick him up after a soccer game. That, so was funny.
