Wednesday, June 16: It was a glorious day, sunny with some clouds, but with moderate wind keeping the temperatures down. The water was warm, though – if I hadn’t known I’d be chilled when wet, I would have been swimming! I joined friends at this very clean and quiet lake after morning knitting group, and the first thing we did was paddle around to a picnic area so we could eat our lunches! The picnic spot:
Flowers of interest today: an iris island, pitcher plants where I’ve not seen them around this lake before, sheep laurel making splashes of hot pink along the shores.
We also saw two loons (or one loon twice); one island was closed to protect their nesting sites. And a great blue heron, and heard a kingfisher, but did not see it. None of these photogenic birds stayed still close enough long enough to take photos, but it’s still great to see them.
