Story ~ 31 Days of Adirondack Memories <#write31days >

Thank you for joining us for day 6 of my
"31 Days of Adirondack Memories" series!

Today's theme:

   By dusk , calm settles over the camp, 
 kids’ giggles and splashes reigned in after a day of memory making. 
 As day draws to a close, a regal Old Glory
 is carefully taken from flagpole up by route 9, 
where the constant swoosh of cars,
 the downshifting of trucks, wanes.

                 Shadows lengthen from our island in lake’s center, stretching to shore.  
Scattered lights pop on,  spilling glowing yellow stripes across lake’s surface.  
Patterns dance and flow onto the sand. 
 Campfires are spotted around lake’s perimeter. 
Flames shooting.......  sparks  snapping.

This, is our story. 
This is all of us  our summer, our  memories,
the fabric of who we are.
