Sunday Snapshot

Today's leisurely walk around Lake Calhoun by the numbers...

32 baby ducklings
24 bikes parked around Tin Fish
7 kayakers, including one who'd lost his paddles
4.5 miles from the door, around the lake and back
3 fishing boats, skirting the milfoil bloom
2 loons, making me wish I had brought my telephoto lens
2 familiar face sightings, which may be a record number in one walk (not including neighbors)
1:45 time to walk, sniff things, chat, take pictures
1 very sweaty elderly jogger who looked like he was jogging his last mile
1 swaggering teenager, whose shirt proudly announced he was 'going commando' while his low slung pants clearly and thankfully showed he was not
0 sunbathers

Ni Hao Y'all


  1. Sounds like an interesting walk!!

  2. Nice photo. I'd love to live near a Lake for some leisurely walks.
