Sky Watch--snails and superlatives


This gorgeous sky was taken from my new beach chair gifted to me one glorious Sunday afternoon this month at another of Minnesota's '10,000' lakes. Snail Lake, as the name implies, has hundreds of little snail shells littering the shore, some of which I took home in a little zip-lock bag. Simple pleasures indeed!

See more skies at Sky Watch Friday here . Happy August 1st!

Lovely sky and water. Not sure about the snails... they not becoming a pest having been imported from abroad?

The snails look so nice in the water that now I feel guilty for eating them. I left you something gold at my place. play along if you want.

It's good to be back and to check over some of your recent posts. I love your Solace poem, and the photos from your lake vacation.
