These Ducks Like Burnt Jacket

Ducks at the Chalet

Ducks at the Chalet

The other day, I was inspecting the trails on the various lots of Burnt Jacket Shores at Moosehead Lake. I decided to take a stroll on the path from the Chalet on Lot S-10 to the dock. Near where the trail first gets close to the lake, I spotted two ducks resting on a nearby rock not more than 50 feet away. The two hooded mergansers did not seem too concerned and just sat there. One even closed its eyes as if it were dozing.

I continued to the dock and the gorgeous water views. There were a few boats zipping about. The breeze was refreshing on that hot, humid afternoon. It actually seemed a bit cooler than at the chalet.

After a few minutes, I strolled back up the trail. The two ducks were still there, lazing about in the sun on the same rock; unfazed by my presence. As I made my way back to the pickup, I could not help wonder that such an idyllic spot on Moosehead Lake is waiting for some lucky person.
