I promise--I didn't set this photo up. My wife came on this tableau yesterday and told me I should take a picture. The nice thing about turtles--they give you plenty of time to get to the scene. I have no idea why a turtle would leave the comfort and protection of the nice green grass to cross a bridge to a wooden deck. Did he view the concrete turtle bench as another turtle? We'll never know.

The Red-winged Blackbirds are a common sight around lake Manitou, both in body and in song--they remind us that water is nearby and all is right with the world of the lake. One thing we don't see too often--their incredibly elaborate nest. Here are some pictures to show the master weaver's creation--and a bonus egg (with more to come).

We had a little squall pass over us a couple of days ago--right as the sun was setting. The resulting rainbow seemed to stay in the sky forever. I think if you asked the folks on the East Shore if it was a good place to have the end of a rainbow, they would heartily agree. Gold is where you find it.
