I had to go back to one of my assigned locations today due to a stupid mistake. I managed to have the camera on the wrong setting and all the pix from there were so badly out of focus I couldn't use them. I don't get paid for a second trip, but I tried to enjoy the moment in a beautiful place.
This boardwalk beckoned me. The chain gate was open. In fact, I didn't even notice it till I came back. I thought it was a public access, but there is a sign on the chain that says private. So you get a little private view of Portage Lake. Portage Lake is where Onekama (oh-NECK-uh-muh) is located. (And that is where John of Random Stream of Consciousness is from.) It's another beautiful west Michigan place.
The boardwalk leads through a wetland, technically a wet meadow. It looks grassy and solid, but I suspect it's really soggy to walk on. There were quite a few of these trees, the tamarack. The tamarack is one of the few conifers that drops its needles every year.
I suspect this sign gives weight to the "private" theory. Imagine my surprise (since I thought it was public) to discover...
...this sign! If you can read the small print you will see that someone imported it from California. Oh, those California girls! But, the lake itself was lovely, in the late sun.
Now, I have to scoot. I've got about two more hours of work to do yet. Oh, yeah... my computer got ANOTHER virus today. That part is not very funny.
