Oneida Lake, Part 1

Today I am offering a change of pace.  Lately, most of my photos that I’ve shared have been from my yard or a nearby nature center, but this time,  from a local lake:  Oneida Lake, about five miles from where I live.  Growing up, we often went fishing for walleye pike, perch, and other fish and had family picnics at a state park and other sites around the lake.

Canada Geese

The last few years, Canada Geese are everywhere!   They are becoming a pest.

Sailboat Leaving the Pier at Sylvan Beach

Boats and ships of all kinds stop along the pier at Sylvan Beach — big yachts, barges, sailboats included.  It looks as though this sailboat was going to enjoy a sunset view while out on the lake.

These boulders have been added to this beach area to help prevent erosion.

Stay tuned for my next post, Oneida Lake, Part 2.
