This water bird is one of my favorites. It is not a duck as some people might think, and if you would like to learn more about it you can click on the name above. (Kim)
We were blessed with the company of friends also.
Kim and I pose here with the Luke and Kimberly.
Of course, the day would not have been complete without a swim in the crystal clear lake.
