El Dorado and Black Pond

Morgan, Daisy Lu and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather we had yesterday and go to El Dorado Beach Preserve on Lake Ontario. It's about a 20 minute drive from our house.

It's a beautiful place and it just so happens that the North Country Bird Club, which I am a member, founded it many years ago.
The boardwalks are just beautiful.Beautiful reflections. Stunning color. Black Pond. Lake Ontario. We didn't see too many birds but found some hints they've been there... some really big hints!Morgan found a bubbling hole and Daisy found a leaf! You can see Nine Mile Point Nuclear Plant near Oswego, NY. From where Morgan is squatting to the power plant is approximately 22 miles.Back down the sunny trails we could hear a few Black-capped Chickadees talking to each other through the woods. What a good time we had. That sun was just the perfect touch.And a shot of the road for the Fendland Walker.

Fantastic photos of a very lovely area. This is the kind of place I like to visit, I could spend hours there.

A perfect day for the three of you - I bet you'd see more birds if Daisy weren't along - but she needs a walk too! Beautiful fall pictures and yep - that's the theme!

Hi Evie
Can we go there when I come over to visit with you someday? Looks a fabulous place. By the way if you put that poo one up side down then the splat of poo would look like a lady dancing! (-:
