Seabeck (Saturday - Oct 17th)

Seabeck was glorious in the morning. Red and yellow maple leaves. Apple trees with ripening fruit. A quaint waterfront within view of lodging and dining hall. It was haiku poet's dream. But I found it difficult to make it to breakfast, scheduled from 8:00-8:45.

Full of excitement and poetic inspiration, Naia, Genie, and I had talked for hours in our room at "The Firs," long after the anonymous haiku workshop ended.
