The geese have been hanging out in a corner of the lake by the dam. Maybe they were still molting, so unable to fly away when the fireworks went off, and decided to retreat to the furthest corner away from the beach area.

The Bent Tree employees put on a fantastic fireworks show on the 4th of July. There’s something extra special about watching the fireworks in Bent Tree. The reflection on the lake, the echoes of the fireworks booming off the mountains, the background chorus of frogs and cicadas…it’s hard to beat. And, the thunderstorms held off just long enough for the festivities.

There are two deer in the first photo below; the fawn in just hard to see. See the second photo below for a good view of the fawn as both deer emerged from the tall vegetation.

It looks like there was no “Goose Roundup” in Bent Tree this year. On Tuesday, the geese found a quiet area of Lake Tamarack, away from the Pot Luck Dinner crowd at the beach. The geese may still be in the molting process. If so, they are unable to fly right now. If they are through with the process of losing old flight feathers and growing new ones, it’s possible that tomorrow’s fireworks will scare them away. Click here for more information.
Time was spent on Christmas Day going through old family photos, including some from the 1920’s (a little before my time). Here are a couple of the photos. Just thought they were interesting considering some of the subject matter on this website.
