Open Water

Here is how the lake looked on March 31st, 2014.  Note that date well--we don't think we will ever see ice on Manitou this late again.  April 1st was the first totally clear day.  We had three loons on the lake to mark the occasion--the most I have ever seen at once.  They are just passing through.  That goes for the flock of white pelicans that are due soon.  I hope the late thaw hasn't caused them to pass us by.
