The waters of Cheadle lake have been calling.
The kayaks have been hanging from the garage rafters for far too long.
It's also time for the little dog to get her sea legs.
Tonight we went out again. This time we brought the camera. Cookie was calmer and definitely on her way to becoming quite the little sea dog. Calm while on deck there were no swims tonight. One slip, but she fell into the cockpit instead of the water. She even wandered out to the front hatch cover a time or two.
Evening is a nice time to be on the lake.
Serendipity with the camera: caught a few geese in flight.
Blackberries are abundent. The air smelled like blackberries.
Ron found a snack.
I found a bryozoa. Are you impressed I know its name?
Yeah didn't know that one either. Google is my friend.
Spatterdock...what a great name!
Time to head back.
More Spatterdock floating gracefully on the water.
Calm waters nearing the dock
Load 'em up, it's time to go home.
