Patricia Lake – Floating on Mercury

When nature gives you smokey air, you have a couple of choices:

  1. Sit inside and mope.
  2. Go outside and float.

The smoke was aided by particularly weak winds and thus the surface of the lake was like glass. Patricia Lake Bungalows rent out canoes, rowboats and kayaks. L and A had brought their pump up paddle boards, so we opted to rent kayaks and join them on the lake. While the tandem kayak was a little tough to steer, it was much more comfortable than our last canoe experience.

Silver mercury

beneath, we float silently,

paddles shimmering.
