Perseids, ISS and ice cream

Midmorning approached as we converged on the family campsite from several different locations - by several different conveyances.

Before the sky colored from dusk to indigo, an ice cream maker emerged from a large box and a multitude of coolers were soon depleted of their largesse - milk, cream, flavorings, ice, ice and more ice as well as a container of rock salt.

The night ceiling was scratched with star sketched lines. Several filmy clouds parted to reveal the International Space Station, with newly-docked Endeavor, crossing the distant stage.

While overhead magic, far from city lights, exhibited the great August show, we consumed freshly churned ice cream atop fruit cobbler!

I could live my entire life in August!

I certainly wanted to be doing that in August. The pen and ink sketch seems to demand my attention.
