Mom Of Eight

There are three families of Mallard ducks nesting along the shore of our lake, they come up onto the lawn several times a day to eat the cracked corn that I put out. The babies are adorable!

Drowning On Our Lake Yesterday

Apparently a canoe tipped over around 2:30AM yesterday morning and one fellow drowned, the other swam to shore. They found the body by dragging the lake around 6:30AM. According to news reports they wore NO life jackets. How many times do we have to have this happen before people wise-up and wear a life jacket? […]

West End Ice

The Spring winds are melting the ice on our lake, and has blown it to the west end. When the wind changes it often piles up in our cove.

Barrow’s Goldeneye

This male and female Goldeneye stopped briefly this morning to feed in the cove. They are gorgeous ducks.

My Mallards have returned

Every year this pair of Mallards make a nest in my yard down by the lake, last year they had 8 babies! It is fun to watch them feeding and swimming. They come up on the lawn and I put some cracked corn out for them to feed.

Golf on the Frozen Lake

Today there was a golf derby on the frozen lake. Many cars drove onto the ice and the occupants played golf with orange colored balls. Flags were set up to mark the greens (snows). It was a perfect day for such an activity. So far no stray balls landed in our yard or hit the […]

Fishing Derby

Today was the Fishing Derby on our lake, many vehicles arrived with people all decked out in Carhartts or snow suits. At first it was chilly and windy, but as the day progressed the sun came out and the wind slowed down. It looked like a good time was had by all.

Fishing Hut

Today there are about six or seven fishing huts in our view of the lake. Fishing must be good!

Seriously Gorgeous Sunset

Wow, we’ve had some seriously gorgeous sunsets lately.

Winter Sunset Best!

Wow, the sunset kept getting better and better. Awesome!

Winter sunset 4:00PM

The sunsets at this time of year can be spectacular. This one is shaping up to be gorgeous. I’ll keep watching and taking photos, maybe post another for tomorrow.

Wind Polished Ice

The wind has been blowing for days, and has polished the ice into a slick surface. Not good for walking right now.

40 ft. Christmas Tree

Our tree is visible all over the lake. So beautiful!

Christmas Day Stroll

The lake was busy Christmas day, people walking, skating, snow machines, ATV’s, dogs, ice fishing huts, and everything else. The day was sunny and not too cold. Christmas in Alaska, fun for all!

Merry Christmas

The ice is thick enough to support a vehicle, an airplane took off and landed the lake is now a huge runway. People are riding snow machines and ATV’s and the winter fun has begun. Because caring for Bob is taking so much of my time, as well as working on a 32′ commission for […]

Melting Lake Ice

42 degrees and wind, the lake ice is melting. Strange weather for this time of year.

Duck Migration

The ducks are migrating south, they stop here for a little rest on the lawn, then take off all together and continue their journey.

Ice Fishing Hut

It is cold and windy outside, but the ice fishermen are toasty warm inside the fishing hut with a heater and a T.V. so they won’t miss the game.

Wind Polished

Nineteen degrees and howling wind, very uncomfortable outside.

Fog

Rather foggy out there today.
