The RG and Lucy left for a quick ride around the lake at the state park. Ring a ling---'get your camera I'm coming back'. Will be posting about what he saw in later posts next week. Hint: it has feathers and flys. I was ready when he pulled in (you wouldn't believe my hair); hopped in the truck and off we went.
While here and there from launch to launch I got some very nice reflection shots.
On a balmy January day the conditions were right for misting above the lake with temps in the 50s and a skim of ice on the water.
The bar of white in the middle is the mist reflecting the mist.
A reflection of cattails in their winter garb.
And a little island reflected in the open water surrounded by ice.
So . . . is everyone in the process of preparing for the migration to staying connected through Google+ Friends? I'm working at it reluctantly.
If I am interpreting the notice correctly, the BlogSpot format will remain available as is (which I find to be a good thing) with the change involving how we stay connected.
I have had Google+ account for some time but find the format, to be like walking down the cereal aisle at the grocery store where one can only hope to find what they're looking for. ;) I will continue to study the ins and outs to see if I am missing something.
Wishing everyone a blessed day and hope to stay connected.
Owned and operated by Heineman Winery, Crystal Cave helped save the family-run winery from demise during Prohibition.
Tours of the cave helped pay the bills,
while other wineries on the island closed.
Discovered by workers in 1897 while digging a well for the winery 40 feet above, Crystal Cave is the world's largest geode. The walls of this cave are covered in strontium sulfate, a blueish mineral called celestite. These crystals range from 8 to 18 inches long.
The original cave was much smaller than what appears today,
as crystals were harvested and sold for the manufacturing of fireworks.
