A Day at the Lake

In celebration of me starting to feel a little more normal, and considering the forecast for tomorrow is mid-40s rain and 30mph winds, we put away the school books and headed out for a day at Jordan Lake.

We ate lunch by the lake, played on the playground and then headed out on the 1.4 mile loop trail. It only took us 1 1/2 hours to walk the trail and we got passed not once but twice by the same woman. But it was so worth it.

After uploading the pictures I realized that there are none of Robbie, but rest assured that he is with me - I was just the one with the camera.

Mary swears she saw a bat inside this hollow tree.

This tree was about 100years old.

Again, I love images of them walking away in a line like this.
The water levels are way down. I am standing in a clump of marsh grass that should be in the water to take this photo.
One of the reasons it took us 1 1/2 hours to walk a mile-and-a-half, frequent rest breaks.

We did manage to see several hawks, a pair of egrets and a very large squirrel nest. I love our nature days.
