We took a picnic lunch from a local barbeque place and ate under the tall canopy of trees that made the day feel so much cooler than it actually was.

Then we spent some time on the little covered boat dock feeding the turtles, geese, and huge carp that gathered in large numbers around the dock hoping for a treat.

The pathway around the lake is mostly shaded, so even in the heat of the afternoon summer sun,  we were able to walk around the lake and enjoy the view of the original lake home of the Aldridge family. This home is in a beautiful setting, and is a great place for private parties.

As the day was winding down, we ended up in the large party pavilion with built-in benches. A soft breeze blew through, and we sat and talked while the geese trouped up from the lake for a visit.
