The afternoon was a sweltering 95F but the mill pond proved a shady delight. We brought a cooler for drinks and a dry bag for the camera. Follow the buoys arising the pond. Catch sight of the swamp gnomes? Enchanting!

Don't think twice; sign up for this lovely experience. Sit back and enjoy the quiet, beautiful scenery. The first outing of the day is probably the most shady and quiet, we only saw a few fishermen. Enjoy.
