An Afternoon at the Lake
Some friends invited us to spend this afternoon at their lake place about 50 miles north of Spokane. What a peaceful and restorative place a mountain lake can be on a summer afternoon.
We watched the setting sun light the tops of the clouds, which were reflected in the darkening lake. The trout were jumping for bugs, and the cormorant and the grebe and the kingfisher were diving for the trout.
The red-breasted nuthatches were vying with a chipmunk at the bird feeder and the mosquitoes were non-existent.
