The weather has turned a bit colder, the wind is down, and the sun comes up later. An early morning kayak or paddle board ride can be a misty treat! Mary was out on her board when it was below 40 and took some great iPhone photos as the sun rose.
Learning To Fly
We still have 4 loons on the lake. Two parents, their almost constant adult companion, and Pearl. Pearl has been seen flying a bit. We saw her cover about half of the lake this morning and I was lucky to catch her practicing later.
The lake level is dropping fast and it is already harder to get into Turtle Cove. Jen’s visit there today revealed a marked change in color following temperatures in the 30s a few days ago. We have been taking lots of photos of the lake from various perspectives as we paddle around and will share more of them in future editions. We will also track the lake lowering. Hopefully, it will be fast, allow repairs this year, and be on its way back up before the bottom of Turtle Cove freezes again. Let’s all hope it doesn’t rain as much as last year until the repairs are done.
