Summer is Here

Summer is finally here. Gardens are growing, blueberries are in season and the trees are lush and green. Here are some photos taken during an early morning walk along the Lake Sorrento dam and Yellow River.


Mr. Porter's garden.

The path to the river looks a road through the jungle.

Snapping Turtle!
