As time passed this morning, we suddenly came to the realization that we needed just a few things for the Super Bowl party. They were simple little things, but we needed them.
I rushed around the grocery store, snatching up the things I needed and hurried to pay. Then I had to fill the Explorer with gas, as the little warning beep and light went off as I pulled into the gorcery store parking lot. Gas tank filled, I decided to rush to the lake to see if there was anything of interest!
I don’t think I have ever photographed this sign before. Must be new?
And here are the boathouses in the winter, complete with ice!
Very cool, I happened to catch one of those ice “sailboats” sitting near the boathouses….
Looks like Squaw Island would be easy to walk to with ice on the lake!
And speaking of walking, there were several folks out walking along the edge of the lake on the ice.
It was so beautiful out today, even a quick shot of the Seagulls turned out pretty!
Now, Bill in Scotland has been featuring some water birds and ducks on his blog lately, so when I saw several Mallard Ducks, I thought I would impress you with my abilities to call them to me! Yes, I do make sure no one is near, then I begin “quacking”. As I did this, a Mallard couple spotted me and began waddling towards me.
As I watched Mr. and Mrs. Mallard come towards me, I suddenly looked again, and saw *many* ducks!
Look at the coloring on these drakes! They are so gorgeous with their bright green heads and those awesome orange feet!
I was so pressed for time, I felt awful as I had to leave my newfound friends. When I looked again, even MORE ducks were coming towards me!!!
I really wish I had more time to spend in Canandaigua today….it was a “picture-perfect” day. I only spent about 5 or 10 minutes at the lake but was pretty happy with how these photos turned out!
