Don’t move

The big houses that border the Onondaga Lake trails have interesting ornaments on the high side, I’ve noticed during recent work break walks from the library. This peaceful position catches my attention. Close by sit these three characters.

Now we make way for the big bikes

My work colleagues and I must now walk on the inside path at Onondaga Lake Park during our library break strolls. The outer path is now taken by many bicycle riders, including the big tandems rented at the Visitors Center.

Two boats in

Walking with my library colleagues last week, we noticed the second boat has arrived in the Onondaga Lake Marina. We have two small craft side-by-side. How soon, we wonder, do they come in big numbers and sizes?

The wind whips up Onondaga Lake

Walking on a work break on Friday, the wind was stirring the water greatly on Onondaga Lake. The color was brown. The birds were having a blast up higher. I wanted to catch the sound for you all with my iPhone 8, too.

More boat time!

I couldn’t tell if this guy was putting the boat in or taking it out. I sure was glad enough for an April day warm enough for it to be coming or going.

Up the lake with a paddle

Walking on the first warm day in what seems like forever, and what do my work friends and I spot on the near edges of Onondaga Lake? Yes, that is a hearty paddleboarder navigating the waterway. Air temperature, 60 F.
