Eagle Watch

The lake was beautiful today... but, oh-so-cold! We got to go on an "eagle watch cruise" with the homeschool group to see the bald eagles that feed on spawning fish in the lake this time of year. Fortunately, the boat was enclosed and heated, so we didn't freeze to death! They also served hot chocolate. It was very nice. The kids liked going out on the deck, but they didn't stay out very long at a time because it was really cold. Mist was rising off the water because the water was actually warmer than the air. And the rising mist had frosted the trees. Part of the time it was snowing, and part of the time the sun was shining brightly. We really enjoyed the beautiful scenery!
