Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

A group of kids ruined the Gypsy Camp. I don't know who, but they went way out of their way to wreck everything: both swings, tight rope, chin-up bar, little love nest hammock, bird feeder and bonfire benches, leaving only the big net untouched. I don't understand. I've welcomed everyone, asking only that they respect what I've built. It is my home.
