I attended the 2010 National Episcopal Cursillo Conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, last week. It was held at the Springmaid Beach Resort, which offered excellent facilities at a very attractive rate.
A feature of the resort I had not expected was a long fishing pier (see picture below). The day I arrived, I took a late night walk down the pier. It was a cloudy night with a full moon and few people actually fishing. I wrote a modest poem about this experience called “Pier.” You can read it on Lionel Deimel’s Farrago.
