Yesterday afternoon was beautiful up here. Down state it was raining and 45 degrees. Up here the sun was shining, the winds were calm, and the temperature was in the low to mid 60s. What a difference! What an afternoon to be on the lake!
There wasn’t much activity on the lake. I did see a couple pairs of mallard ducks, one male hooded merganser, and a single loon. The turtles were very bashful and, for the most part, hit the water before I even caught a glimpse of them. However, I did catch a couple of them.
I ventured up Horton Creek again. The waters were still and the marsh marigolds were in full bloom.
At times the lake was pretty calm, allowing for some reflection photos. You can see how blue the sky was.
Just when I thought I had the entire lake to myself, I met another kayaker, a neighbor, and spent the better part of an hour chatting, covering a variety of topics. It was a real pleasure to meet you, Aaron. I look forward to our next conversation.
