Choppy water in a lake?

Vivant at rest
Almost an Arizona sunset
Osprey on the wing
Loon at evening
Pastel sunset

looking out the bimini
The cook! With breakfast!
And the aftermath

NO WIND, smooooth water
Iron genny to the rescue I guess
No spashing anyways
smooth, er, motoring
Darn, I wanted to sail.
Was that a puff?
I guess not, sigh
Osprey with a fish supper
Make sure no one gets it
