CB, 9Nov14, Prompt #174, “To Have and to Hold”

Retirement had come at last
He’d freely roam by sea or land
A destination always planned.

July 23rd – So tell us about your town, city, state, country…places where you can escape for the day or week to camp, or be amused in a park setting. A place you’ve never been but would like to (have) gone. Be poetic and we’ll be informed and share your locale.

Tide Pool, Pacific Coast

Where, up late, you can see
Chiton’s midnight walk
