Remember the day It was so foggy on Lake Phelps that
Before we arrived at the lake..we saw hundreds of snow geese in a farmers field.
It was foggy..
We arrived at the lake and it was foggy…
I went jewel hunting and since we couldn’t bird the lake we went on a bird hike through the park.
I think this is a Sycamore tree..
You could see right thru it!
it’s a wonder these trees are still standing!
You can see below that the campground is not full..
( we are now here)
Somerset Place, a North Carolina state historic site that includes a restored 1830s plantation home and outbuildings that can be toured, including reconstructed slave quarters.
I think that this is also a Sycamore..Please correct me if I am wrong.
The view from the plantation house looking toward the lake which is still foggy.
We continue our walk past various spider web structures.
Tundra Swan pass overhead…
We take the pathway to another part of Lake Phelps…maybe the fog has burned off by now..
this view is looking from the overlook back to the path we came in on.
We saw some ducks and Swans…but many too far to ID.
We counted at least ten Pileated Woodpeckers in the area.
We did see Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
We went to the same pier I photographed this morning…what a difference!
Check out the video of the pond..
We ended our day watching Tundra Swan having dinner…
