Yesterday, many more fish were caught, and some were eaten while others were released. I managed to walk along the lakeshore a bit and enjoyed identifying various plants and animals. For example, I saw another garter snake (maybe one of the same ones we already saw), as well as identified several plants, among them:
- Turkey pea
- American water plantain
- Common yarrow
- Virginia strawberry
- Long beechfern
- Common milkweed
It is difficult to completely disregard work email. But I’m trying.
Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves, and that is great. There is no pressure to do anything but relax. I feel very privileged and thankful.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)
Below are some photos, especially featuring a campfire at night, always a comforting thing.
