A Flying Trip to Roy Lake, Ft. Sisseton

After seeing Risë Smith's presentation about the Lake Madison Chautauqua on Saturday morning, the wife and I hit the trail and joined TQ and LS camping at Roy Lake. We headed over to Ft. Sisseton, where the Northern State University Theatre Department is kicking off its first year of a summer theater season there. The play was an interesting and fun rendition of A. R. Gurney's play "Sylvia," about a dog that enters the lives of a couple. The play was set up in the old barracks at the fort, which didn't always work well. It was too warm, and the seating left a lot to be desired, but the food was good and I saw some people from Sisseton I knew.

We had a good evening camping (despite mosquitos) and hiking today, and we ate well, as always. No one got poison ivy, I hope! It's a beautiful park and the whole area up in NE South Dakota is beautiful right now. In addition, we paused in Roslyn to drive by the Vinegar Museum, which was closed. Dang!
