September is here already. School has started and we are down to our last couple of months of good pontooning weather! We who live at the lake know the beauty of it all year round, although the beauty in the winter is so much different than in the summer. In the spring and autum I love the fog that comes off the lake, sometimes in little wisps or columns, and if there there is a breeze they look like little angels dancing on our wonderful lake. Sandy Adams has some beautiful photos in the calendar of the winter months at Gardner Lake. But for now, let's enjoy the last of the summer and the coming autumn!
