Staats_Clouds & water Bald Eagle Lake 50600One of the joys of living in the upper Midwest is the ability to see “forever.”  The sky is large and the vistas can go on forever.  And in Minnesota (land of 10,000+ lakes), we have the wonderful opportunity to see the sky reflected in our beautiful lakes.  Last week we put our canoe in one of the local lakes.  It had been a day of thunderstorms and rain, but the clouds seemed to part and go around the lake.   A warm summer’s evening, a bit of dinner, and a paddle on the lake is a great way to relax.  Then add to that a beautiful sky, and summer is wonderful!
