The Lakeshore Walk

Morning sun lights up this big sweetgum on Lakeshore, a favorite walk that parallels Shackelford Creek and winds around Long Lake (#3). Hidden Lake is also accessed off Lakeshore, and I sometimes detour up to take in that view, as well. This is also the point in the Lakeshore walk where I sometimes peel off and walk the west bank of Long Lake and the north bank of Bream Lake.

New Faces

I’ve been seeing a lot of new faces walking in the neighborhood recently, and it occurs to me that those of you who moved here in the past few months have really missed out on the social life of Country Place due to the pandemic. We haven’t been able to hold our Spring Picnic and Easter Egg Hunt, our July 4th get-together, and movies in the park. I’m hoping that we’ll get back to some degree of normalcy in the next few months, but in the meantime I enjoy seeing our neighbors enjoying walks (and jogs) through one of the most beautiful areas in Texas.

 

Our Dry Summer Ends

Our dry summer ended abruptly during the first few days of September this year, with rain interspersed over several days that flooded the creeks and filled our lakes again here in Country Place. I snapped this photo of the Old Lake (#1) spillway on the 3rd. During the next few days I poured over seven inches of rain out of our gauge.September 3rd, 2020: Old Lake Spillway
