Week-end Retreat

A couple of weekends ago I headed off to Montgomery Bell State Park for a few days of retreat with the girls. We had been there less than five minutes when we were all herded to the lodge basement because a tornado was heading our way.

There were, in fact, three tornadoes that made our Friday afternoon especially memorable, and that fortunately left the Park with little more than wind and some hail damage.Golf ball sized hail looked like a soft dusting of snow across the lake.

The following morning brought cool temps, a misty lake, and sun kissed trees

I loved how these trees’ limbs framed the rising mist off the lake.

Calm after the storm – all that a retreat is made to be.
