The Caretaker's Concern 10/10/08
No weather report, the Caretaker forgot to take note of it. Overall though it was a rather nice day, sun shinning, leaves turning, water lapping along the shore, etc.
Early this morning the Caretaker heard the solitary call of one lone Loon. There are only two times of the year when Loons can be heard on the Lake, during their Spring migration North, and during their Autumn migration South. The call of the Loon this morning seemed to be full of much sorrow, which is to be expected because this Loon knows it is leaving the Adirondacks for the next six months. It may just be the Caretaker, and it probably is, but to him the Spring call of the Loon always seems to be rather joyous, while the Autumn call of the Loon seems to be rather sad.
Speaking of Loons, this Summer the Caretaker had a few sightings of Loons, which is rather uncommon for Lake George. His guess is that the Loon population is making a come back and even though Lake George does not provide suitable nesting waters, perhaps some have found habitation in some of the surrounding smaller bodies of water and from time to time have come to Lake George on holiday to forage for fish. Hopefully this is the case and hopefully there will be even more Loon sightings during the Summer next year.
Anyway, not much else to report, or at least there isn't much else that the Caretaker remembers about this day.
