We've had a couple of light freezes this week, but the fish in Beaver Lake came up and swam around in a sunny spot this morning. My friend A and I were walking around the bird sanctuary and the lake, and we stopped to look out across the lake from a deck. Looking down into the murky water we began to see more and more fish, around 6 inches long, swimming to the surface. A little turtle poked its nose in and was quickly chased away by the fish. Meanwhile the sculling man sped by silently.
And we moved over to another deck where we drew a large nesting box for water birds.
