    the most obvious thing.....

    The most obvious thing to do when you visit a lake town is to take a boat tour.

    Mid-Lakes Navigation Company offers daily tours of the lake on one of two boats (the Barbara S. Wiles vessel is shown in the accompanying pics). You get to view the lakefront of some of the mansions on the lake, the Sherwood Inn and the lovely wooded shores (which is especially grand in the Fall). They also offer special packages and group rates. They offer 1-hour trips for $10 upto 3-hour dinner cruises with band for about $50.

    Reflect on the lake....

    Thayer Park

    Reflect on the lake or have the lake reflect you. Either way it is the path to tranquility. Both the east and the west side of town have small parks with lake front access. The west side is the most frequented and that is also where the dog walks and the joggers track are so we tend to the east side (Thayer Park) where there is less foot traffic.

    Thayer Park has sitting benches right down at the bank of the lake and a few picnic benches and some trees placed nicely to allow great view of the lake while giving shade from the noon-hour sun.

    The Lake

    The lake you never want to miss. Such a peaceful lake. If I get time, I must walk around the whole lake. I like the bridge. Actually, it is not a real bridge. Just a bridge into the lake without the other bank. In winter, it often cover with snow and the water frozen. I don't know what it looks like in summer. I believe it is beautiful either.
