The lake has pretty limited access, so it stays quiet most of the time. One evening I noticed a stump sticking out of the water on the other end of the lake. That was pretty far away, so we used binoculars to see the stump as I hadn't noticed it before. With the binoculars we could see that it was not a stump at all, but rather it was a moose, munching on moose moss in the lake.
Even at 10:30 at night, it was light enough to take pictures. Sometimes the lake was so calm.
This view was taken from the deck of the house.
One night we looked out and noticed a rainbow and loved how it was reflected in the calm lake. It wasn't until I looked at the picture that I saw it was really a double rainbow. Through the trees we could hear one of the neighbors singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
It was a wonderfully restful place to stay.
