A deepening drought

My gardening companion wanted to walk along the lakeshore yesterday morning; I found it bittersweet.

Our nearby lake (Lake Hartwell) is SO low that it's looking entirely different that we've ever seen it. The eroded sandy edges below the rocky clay now gives way to silt and then to water.

We watched a Great Blue Heron enjoying a fish, with a Belted Kingfisher nearby.

  1. Our lakes were really low a couple of years ago. It was sad.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
