Mother State Park is jam-packed with visitors between Memorial

Although the weather has been a bit damp and cool of late, yesterday
was just gorgeous! After enjoying a very nice meal and a bit of
chatting with several of Cheria's relatives, I took my camera down
to the lakeshore to take a few pictures. A handful of canoes and
kayaks were sharing the water with a large flock of Canadian geese

just might have to go up there again in a week or two after the
leaves have had a chance to turn into an autumn mosaic!
