More Eagles and a Heron

Just as we headed south from the OCC shore, just past the reeds, we found a […]

Kayaks and Herons and Loons, Oh My!

We took an evening kayak paddle around Duck Lake last night.  As the sun was going down the lake lay down very quiet as the wind died down and the boats took to shore.  It was the end of a beautiful day.  So relaxing to be on the water at this time of day.  Here’s a sample of the sight we saw. I did catch […]
