After a decade-long winter we decided to celebrate the second day of summer by boating on Fish Lake. As many of you know, Fish Lake dries up during the summer. There is something magical seeing this special place while ‘it’s there’ — especially on a beautiful sunny day. We went to the far end of the lake and up one of the fingers until we came to a log barrier too big to portage around. We found a grassy bank — a great spot for a relaxing lunch. Ducks and geese abounded. We followed several flotillas of mom and chicks.
The morning’s light made striking reflections on the water, a perfect picture opportunity. After a leisurely paddle back to the dock we gathered for some Talking Rain and health-food snacks (potato chips). Many of us felt the day was a peaceful experience we will remember for a long time.
Many thanks to Lana Lindstrom who really did all the work.
Participants were Anne Bonine, Marlene Drescher, Pat Esch, Lana Lindstrom, Judy Ness, Jack O’Donnell and Ellen Sather, leader.
