We are home from camping at Mahoney State Park. It was a mixed experience, with some good things, and some not so great things. In past years we have run into a tick or maybe two, and this year we dealt with about 25 of them. We also missed ripe mulberries there by just a few days, while at home my strawberries were abandoned and ready to eat. Our favorite little shop in Ashland, Postscript Press, happened to be closed for the week. We had good experiences fishing, doing the rock climbing wall, and hiking. We saw lots of animals and snails. Swimming was good. But we decided to head home late the night before checkout rather than face another night in the cabin.
