It has been an interesting week on Lake Jocassee, 

   with the relentless continuation of hot, dry days without a cloud to be found for most of the week, but ending with a couple of cooler, overcast days to give the eyes a rest. The mornings have been subtly cooler as well, as we sneak upon the Fall Equinox. There are not 4 seasons on Jocassee but rather 365, if only you give it your attention. Everyday now more change towards fall is apparent. The dark jungle green of mid-summer foliage is fading fast towards the colors of fall. The breezes are cooler, and more often from the north. Now if only we could get some rain!

SWIMMERS REPORT. Next week promises a return to near 90 degrees, so don’t put that suit away just yet. We usually swim until nearly mid-October here.

LOON REPORT. These two days of cooler, overcast weather this week had my attention focused skyward, with wishful gazes. I saw a cormorant at some distance and nearly fooled myself into thinking it was a loon. It’s too early, I know, but some urges just can’t be controlled. ~B
