Afternoon at the lake

I hadn't been swimming all summer, so I went out to the lake this afternoon a got a little swimming in (by myself--that's just how it worked out).
a little blue sky in the east

an osprey or bald eagle?

a good supper in the insulated bag my sister-in-law gave me

There was a little more cloud cover than I had anticipated, but, all in all, it wasn't so bad.  There were lots of minnows along the edge of the lake.  Some kids were trying to catch them in nets.  The kids were just packing up to leave as I settled in.  There were a couple of kayakers and one fisherman with a small electric motor.  I did see lots of fish jumping.  After everyone was out of the water, a flock of geese swam from the middle of the lake to the edge where I had been.  There were 23 geese.  I wondered why they didn't just fly over to the edge.  It was a peaceful afternoon.
Goodbye summer. 


  1. Looks like a nice place and time. You make me think, I haven't been swimming in ages. Cannot swim with the hearing aids, and am deaf without. (smile)
    Love to watch the Osprey.
    Take care and love from the central Piedmont...

  2. I was going to send you a note and see how your Monday swim went, looks like it was lovely!!
