A beautiful day on the lake. Some winds out of the North provided some action for the inner tubes float. Excitement was that a beaver swam by. His second siting this year. Big guy intent on business. I was floating almost on shore and he went by about 20 feet out. He then searched the more westerly lily pads for some grub.
The loons have a pair of younglings. They have been seen swimming in the center. From their sounds they might have been more to the southeast earlier but late this afternoon sounds shifted to the west.
