Enjoy the Day

Lake Kittamaqundi

It was another coronavirus day. It was a day when I had planned to be sitting on a Florida beach, but prudence caused me to cancel our trip. But, the need to be near water was overwhelming and so we decided to wander around Lake Kittamaqundi in Columbia, Maryland. It was a nice walk and I was taken by the clouds in the sky reflecting off the surface of the lake. The amount of algae growth was evident in the water and I also saw two specialized boats scooping the algae put to clear the lake. 

Mowing the Lake

The water plant removal boats were interesting to watch. It was almost like they were mowing the lake. The bins were collecting massive amounts of the unwanted aquatic plants to help clear the lake. I was unaware of this process before yesterday. 

It was a nice walk and a good way to begin the day. Even Finnegan enjoyed the walk.

Today is a project day! Staining the deck day. It has been coming for a long time and I guess that there is no escaping that the deck needs to be stained and preserved. We will finally also unify the two tones of stain that are already on there deck from where we stained it after rebuilding part of it a few years ago! Home projects. As I always say, they are best when completed!
