Hanging Heart Lake

Memories of this spot abound. And now it is a place where my kids will have memories. It is a view of the point at the marina of the Hanging Heart Lakes (there are three Heart Lakes). Ducks everywhere! And a lovely hike from the parking lot of the marina through the forest to the tip of this point. There is an old, old home-made wooden bench on the hill behind the trees which overlooks the bay. The bench is rather spectacular in the sense that it has been reclaimed by nature; moss and carpenter ants have had their way with it.

I will have to take a photo of the bench this summer. It really is a piece of art.

Thank you.
