Nature Walk

This year my friend Jenn joined us at the lake for a few days. She picked a good year to see the foxgloves:

This reminds me of the Queen Anne's Lace:

I love all these shades of green:

We noticed about six different types of ferns one morning. This is the medium sized one that likes a lot of sun:

One morning after our walk, Jenn and I got busy making four batches of jam. It took us most of the day to wash and sterilize the glass jars, prepare the peaches, fresh ginger root, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries, cook the fruit with lemon juice, pectin, and sugar, fill and seal the jars, and then clean up. While Jenn and I were toiling in the kitchen, David worked on the computer. You would think we would have more to show for a whole day's labor.

We also went kayaking on the lake, and got a bit closer to a little eagle.
Jenn also found a little sunburn and some itchy bug bites. I wish she could stay longer, but she's probably happy to get back to civilization.
