Some days we can call the lake rough

On a recent work break walk, I thought maybe we’d taken a wrong turn and ended up at Lake Ontario instead of Onondaga Lake. The seas, she was a rough, my friends. And this was just one day after the crystal-smooth surface I showed you here yesterday. Oh, the changeable features of our nearest body…

Some days we can call it a lake placid

The other day on a work break stroll from the library, Onondaga Lake truly did look like a mirror. I ran right up to the water with my iPhone 8. Now this looked like a day for sailing. Yet there was nary a person out there on a craft of any sort.

OK, bring more boats in

The parking lot that feeds the Onondaga Lake Park Marina had them lined up waiting to launch when my colleagues and I were taking our work break walk the other day. I enjoyed the symmetry, of the boats, the trailers and the trucks.

Here come the boats

Three cheers for the warmer weather. The boat owners are bringing their vessels back to the Onondaga Lake Yacht Club marina. Soon enough, there will be a line to get them in the water.

The first boat of spring floats my spirits

Taking the afternoon break walk from the library with two of my co-workers Monday, we spied what we’d been looking for right when the marina moorings of Onondaga Lake came into view. The first boat of this spring was tied up in its slip. It was the only one on the water. For now.

Here comes boating weather

I snuck down closer to the lake after I bought my morning cup of coffee at Nichols earlier this week. No boats yet at the marina. But it sure looks like their time is coming.
