Pumpkin Island Take 6

The wind howls, the storm clouds scuttle overhead, shortly after sunset an amazing lightening storm swirled down from Lake Ontario and engulfed the islands. It seemed like the sky was exploding all around as the rain pelted down from the west. Large distinct bolts of lightening reached down from the heavens right to the river, and the air seemed charged and thick with negative ions recently misplaced. Happy to be on a island, however small, covered with moss, but with a firm granite foundation and shielded by large trees rather than bobbing at anchor on a boat.
