First, we parked on one side of the lake and took the pleasant stroll around to the beach. Our first event was a group of hoodlum geese who menaced us along the way.
This guy charged Scrappy- and he said, "yes, sir, right away, sir!"
A rare first-take butterfly snap.
And Scrappy at last meets the beach.
Mmmm mmm good...
My favorite shot.
Dude near us caught a fish in about a minute and a half.
Minnows made Scrappy jump- he's been nipped before.
The obligatory "Laurie coming out of the restroom" shot.
Putting my shoes back on... that water was COLD!
This butterfly I think had just got out of the chrysalis. He flew all around us, and kept beating his wings even when he landed.
One last dip...
In case you can't see it, the sign says, "STAFF PARKING." For the beach lifeguards.
Scrappy was none-too-pleased at having to pass this thug again!
Rolling to cool off.
Afterwards it was Culvers for a bowl of ice cream (and burgers for me and Laurie). I don't know if it helped me, but they sure enjoyed it!
