Pulling in the docks. Pulling out the boats. Getting the house ready for winter. Laying in a supply of wood for the fireplace. Steve caught this water fowl in a pose that all the Long Lakers can relate to. Where did this summer go anyway? Wasn’t it just the 4th of July?
But there’s no mistaking it. It’s late fall and pretty soon we’ll be seeing Long Lake iced over. For now, we enjoy the morning mist over the lake and the spicy colors of our hardwoods.
We found this tiny snapper in our lawn a few weeks ago.
Steve picked him up from the lawn and set him near the water’s edge. He watched him slip into the lake. A baby ancient.
We hope he makes it.
And the fishing continues. At least for the diehards, like Jeff.
