Trip to the lake

Thursday we joined the Backyard Birders at Martha Lafitte, we saw several new warblers. In the photo below is Joanne Eldridge who I knew from working elections several years ago, she is an avid birder, she knows the birds by their songs. We were going to stop for lunch but we got a call to see if we would like to go to the lake with the Carlows. We said sure!! So we hurried home, packed and made sure the cats had enough food and water for a few days. We followed the Carlows to their lake house on the Lake of the Ozarks near Warsaw.
It was a nice evening to sit out and enjoy the view and watch the birds.

We were given the tour of Warsaw, Truman Lake Visitor Center, dam and Steratt Creek. We had some nice meals too, lunch at the Common Ground in Warsaw, catfish at Lincoln Inn and fabulous desserts at Charleys Buffet which is out in the country and always busy.

We walked around their development mornings, there were several birds to watch Blue Birds, Great Crested Flycatcher, Nuthatch and the Yellow Warbler. Ken tried to get a couple of photos of the birds from Carlows deck.

The fisherman were out in large numbers Sat. even tho it was a bit chilly. We had watched on the TV all the storm warnings for back home, which got 5 inches of rain Fri and Fri nite. The lake received only a half an inch of rain Fri nite. We had left a couple of windows open, I was a little concerned of it raining in but when we got home Sun. I didn't see anything wet.
Sunday we woke up to the lake covered in fog, we both love to take fog photos.

The Carlows view of the lake.
The boat dock belongs to their neighbor, they have neither boat or dock.
We had a great time with the Carlows and they even invited us back sometime.
