My family went boating on a 92 degree Sunday afternoon.
We counted 9 deer and about 4 boats.
Sorry, no deer photos. The camera didn't go for a boat ride.
(I drowned one once and I need a new waterproof camera.)
If you look at the photo above (go ahead, click on it for a larger view)
you can see that the water level can sometimes be as high as the concrete before the floating wood dock. It is nowhere near there now.
That's probably the reason for so few boats out on a 90+ degree day.
The longer boats can't launch at the docks at this water depth.
These photos were taken on October 7, 2007.
