More clouds and cool temps greeted us as we woke for our second day. ( So cool, that we opted to throw on the long johns) After a hearty breakfast of homemade biscuits and sausage gravy, we decided to test the Heritage Lake waters for whatever fish might await us… we fished almost the entire length of the lake picking up several pike and watching a deer swim the width in front of us…before succumbing to those increasing rain drops that had forced us to don our raingear.. The entire afternoon was spent under a makeshift tarp hung over the gear and we enjoyed our companionship.

Just in time for the evening meal of Swedish meatballs and noodles, the rain stopped and we actually saw a little sun…Enjoying a nice fire we crashed early into the bags to ward off the cool 40’s.
