Splorin The Rez

It wasn’t raining, the sun was shinning, the wind was blowing and it felt like a spring afternoon for once. After work I made the short drive to the Whitney Point Reservoir where I normally launch from the north end at Upper Lisle but today I decided to be different and put in on the south end and begin from there.

Today’s adventure would have me exploring the three islands that dot the lake. The largest of the three islands is where I beached and began to check things out. I’d love to know if its possible to camp here. I never noticed any signs on the road in that said “No Camping”, however this is something I’ll have to ask the DEC. Following the shoreline north I would be treated to a chorus of song birds. Several vibrant colored Baltimore Orioles and Cardinals fluttered from tree branch to tree branch teasing me with their beauty. I came upon several fisherman, three kayakers and  brief spring shower.

Today was a great day to start the month. I hope we are finally going to have some good weather.

Cheers!

Christmas 2003: #tbt

During the Christmas holiday in 2003 we traveled west to spend time with Julie’s family in Ohio and Michigan. Our boys at the time were young with Michael being 4 1/2 and Max at 18 months. I have such wonderful memories of the holidays spent with family and this was no exception. I cannot believe that these images were taken 12 years ago, how time does fly.

Merry Christmas to you!
