Today we decided to find Wade Lake. Scot and Kris went there last week and said it was beautiful with clear, deep blue water terrific for kayaks. When we woke up it was raining, though. As the day progressed it cleared off so we left about 2:00 pm with one canoe on the truck.
As we got off the highway and onto the dirt road, the skies were threatening. And then it rained.
After about an hour's drive, we found the lake. It was lovely even from far off. The rain was lifting and so were our hopes of getting on the water.

As we drove into the boat launch area, the rain stopped, and off we went.
There were two duck families with several ducklings in tow.
We saw a group of cormorants drying their wings, or something, as they stood like statues on the fallen trees.

We will bring families back here with children who are elementary school aged and up. Canoes and kayaks for sure. Everyone will need water shoes and life jackets. A lunch and camp chairs are a must.
We arrived back at the cabin at 6:00 pm. Not bad for an afternoon of exploring.
