Harrison Bay Camping

In fading twilight
Heron stands, thigh deep water
Waits one last morsel.

Inland looking out
Or offshore looking inward
perspectives differ.

Camping at Harrison Bay State Park was fun despite one rainy day. Why don't we sit outside after dark at home? We enjoyed the capmfire with Amanda and Claire as well as the beautiful lake.
