First we got to the lake and tried skipping stones, but the waves prevented any records being broken. But we did stumble upon a really neat occurrence. If I threw a large stone into the lake and it made a big splash, the splash would create it's own little rainbow! Too cool. Unfortunately we were unable to get a picture of our man made rainbows. We had to settle for this amazing real-life one instead.
Farther down the beach we came across an old abandoned building with this sign on it:
This building must not be molested?? That's just asking for some hot man on building action!
Just past the building was a little pond that we never knew existed, and it was teaming with life. We saw a family of sandhill cranes, two adults and a fledgling, a muskrat, and a family of ducks. All the while dozens of swallows were flying overhead. It was a neat place that warrants another visit soon.
Then on the way back, the sky has some really neat cloud formations that warranted pictures.
Not too shabby for a little hour and a half walk.
