May 7 at Green Lake

Scenes from my walk around Green Lake today, May 7th ...

No, not photoshopped. Just a crazy contrail in the
mostly sunny sky. Warm, nearly 60F (15C)

I believe this is called paddle boarding.
First time I've seen that this year.

Yesterday I got in trouble for calling someone an "old guy".
Today I will be more respectful. :-)
These are Senior Citizens out for a row.

Yes, it's this kind of day ...
The walk is done.
This looked like a perfect thing to do for a while,
but, as they say, I've got places to go and things to do.
Another day, for sure.

 One from yesterday ...

I simply couldn't pass up this colorful sky just after sunset.

For those who have been following these daily posts carefully, this completes 68 posts without missing a day. The next post here on John's Island will be on Saturday. I'll explain then why the break.


  1. Another great walk. The blues of lake and sky are spectacular.

  2. Lovely scenes once again. I trust that your being away is not anything serious. Will miss those daily posts.

  3. Ah, the first break! I look forward to hearing what adventure is taking you away from Green Lake. :-)

  4. ...I first saw SUP, stand up paddling in Hawaii, now I see it every where.

  5. So nice to see your morning walk pictures.
    I've seen the paddle boarding around here on Deep Creek Lake.

  6. Hey. it was an old guy who made the old guy comments. I wouldn't put too much weight on his comments!

  7. Hi John.Lots of people about there enjoying the sun. 'Senior Citizens'...I use to say "What is that?"...now- I'm one of them- gaddzuks! Oh-dear...yes, I'm an 'Old Guy' now- past my prime on the down hill side now...still enjoying things though and hope you are too John. Regards. KEV.

  8. Hello, John! Another great day and walk. The paddle boarding looks like fun, I wish I had some balance to stand on a board like that. Gorgeous sky shot. Enjoy your day and week ahead!

  9. Wonderful light in your images, John.
    Many greetings!

  10. You live in a delightful place. My goodness...I really enjoyed your post.

  11. I'm glad to be back in town so I can enjoy your twilight shots.
