We’ve had such a drought this winter (well, all year, really) that the lake is very dry. Normally all this red is under water.
Clearly we’re not the only ones who can’t keep from walking out toward the water– there’s quite a path here.
The boys come running back to tell us there are deer. Can you see her there, pretending to be invisible?
Just ahead of the kids, after the boardwalk turns the corner, is the tree where the great barn owl likes to roost.
Did you see that? The kids must have scared the owl, because it just took off over our heads. All the geese startled and made a crazy noise until they decided it was a false alarm.
Oh– the deer are back, trying to sneak back into the clearing we frightened them out of on our way down the far side of the boardwalk.
Total, I count nine. The boys say they saw a buck but I missed him.
Not bad for a twenty-minute walk. Thanks for joining us.
