"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Powderhorn Lake

We've missed being on the water, so we took the kayaks to Powderhorn Lake to enjoy the beautiful fall day. Powderhorn is one of our favorite places to go, it's a wonderful place see fish, dolphins and birds. Most people go there to fish, but it's also a great place to watch birds...that's what I do while Stan fishes. We saw more birds today than anywhere on our trip. I can name at least 15, but know it would be more if I knew all the names of the different sandpipers we saw. A few of the birds we saw were Little Blue Heron, Tricolor Heron, Rosette Spoonbill, White Ibis, Pelicans, Royal Terns and Oyster Catchers  The water was very clear...we could see fish scurrying around, dolphins chasing there dinner and stingrays laying on the bottom. It felt wonderful to be outside on the water.
