Hot weather on the lake. The water temperature is up for sure. Yet the air has cooled nicely later in the day for a comforting sit or float.
Them loons. The sound of loons continues to resound around the lake. They even accepted our new fishing boat. As the guys from Charlie's and I stood on the dock, a loon swam to within ten feet of the dock then dove under the new boat and under the dock. A sign! We consider the new boat accepted by the wildlife community.
The Wednesday test of the sirens in Park Rapids was just an out of the world experience. We were first puzzled by the sound but figured given the radar it was a test; but as one listened the horn had a loonish tone to it as it circled. Even the emergency siren speaks loon here. Wow!
