we woke up to beautiful weather on friday, which seemed like a perfect day to get the canoe out. a quick trip around the lake turned out to be a lot of fun. since its still early in the year, we only saw one boat, and the lake was extremely quiet. swallows dipped low over the water, herons waded by the shoreline, and the red winged blackbirds sang from the tops of half-submerged trees. the massive spawning carp created quite a commotion, a were a site to see.
