A fairly nice day on Saturday, although much different than Friday had been. Saturday was cool with a moderate north wind blowing that kept it feeling chilly in spite of plenty of sunshine. All in all a good day to get outdoor projects done without breaking a sweat. Sunday should be similar. Some sun, some clouds, and an afternoon high in the mid 40F range. It has definitely taken a turn toward late fall weather now with mornings well below freezing and afternoons not much above. There were a very few snow flakes in the air Saturday around lunch time. It is only a matter of days now until the ground is all white some morning.
The marina store will be open one more Saturday, October 31st, this year.
Just received word late Saturday of the passing of Limerick cottager Margot Young. That news came as a surprise as Margot was only in her early 60s. We have been friends here at the lake since we were teenagers. Just winterized and shrink wrapped her boat on Friday. Margots husband Clark passed away while at the cottage a few summers ago.
The nice weather on Friday had the bass biting. A couple of guys who know the lake fairly well had great success landing a number of 3 and 4 pound fish during the course of the day. They said that early morning and late afternoon were the best.
There is a young buck hanging around the parking lot now that most of the humans have cleared out. Not a big rack, but he would be legal during season. He has been around a number of afternoons of late.
A quick reminder to those of you who may be at the lake a little later than usual, hunting season is open in both WMU 60 and 61. (this area) Firearms season for small game, waterfowl, and bear is currently open. Hunting is allowed 7 days a week. Going for a walk? Wear some hunter safety orange.
We still have our lodge room that has been converted to office space with both wired and wireless internet available to rent on a daily or weekly basis. Great way to work or teach or attend school from the lake.
