Pipestream Reservoir, Jamestown, N.D
In the morning.
Just look at the reflection. So calm it was the first morning...and the next.
As I mentioned there was a lot of bird activity down by the lake. There were a couple gulls that hung around. I always associate them with the coastal waters so it makes me wonder how a few wind up so far away from their normal habitat.
There are two pelicans here too, one of my favorite birds.
On my walk around the shoreline I found dinner for that evening.
Best of all was finding this duck skull. I soaked it in water all night. I picked away the remaining tissue and then took a toothbrush to it. I then set it out in the sun all day.
It came out much nicer than I expected and am very pleased with the result.
He now sets up on the dash along with all the other bones and will travel along with us now.
I am pretty sure we will be moving on today (Friday). This has been super nice staying down by the lake for a few days but the urge to move is too great to resist. The adventure must continue.
