I love June, when the high water levels in local lakes are great for swimming, and when we are also visited by proud parents showing off their babies — I’m referring to loon and merganser parents of course.
June this year also seemed to be an early harbinger of high summer, with full intensity summer sunsets and stormy clouds. A good number of you were getting in your paddling strokes early this year.
We are all ready for a better summer this year and June 2022 helped to usher that in. Enjoy our photos this month — we have some stunners here.
