Mother nature – both beautiful and destructive

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Recent storms have raised our lake level significantly. The depth at the end of our dock is about 20 feet. Sadly, our neighbor experienced nature’s full fury. Their dock is now gone thanks to a large uprooted tree.

Once again granddaughter and I set off to explore. Our cove continues around the corner, past a large marina, into some marshlands fed by creeks.

Birds and animals like it way back here. I took my camera along but couldn’t get pictures of any local wildlife. I think we spooked them. This creek is rarely accessible to people.

This is the view on the way home. You can see the entrance to the main channel ahead on the left. Our house is on the right about ¼ mile from the point.

We’re expecting lovely but hot weather and a houseful of company for the weekend. In and on the water is the place to be.
