Notes

Sunny day with medium winds and no rainfall in past 24 hours. Lake is calm but much further up along the shoreline than normal...at least 8-10 metres....but given how the limestone ledges here are so flat and extend out into the lake so far, the actual water depth doesn't very much . Lots of seagulls around squawking and flying about.
