Sunday Chuck and I drove to Lake View to visit Black Hawk Lake. It was a gorgoeus 72 degree sunny day. The water was calm, the birds singing and the lawn was studded with a million tiny little violets in shades of white to violet. We found a good spot on the lawn near the lake to enjoy our picnic lunch, read and talk about future travels.
After our sandwiches we walked on the Nature Trail. It is a trail we used to walk 40 or so years ago when we were dating. Early spring is the best time; the trees are starting to bud, everything is turning green and best of all NO mosquitoes yet! We ended our day with a drive around the lake and our favorite ice cream shop with double dip cones of Blue Bunny ice cream.
