We live on a side of a hill about hundred feet from an 8 acre lake. Any “goings-on” noise on the lake travels up the hill. We know when the loons are landing in the spring by their songs and loud splashdown and the mama ducks and their babies talking to each other. We also know when momma Moose and her baby go down to the lake for a drink and a swim, as we hear the splash and see the big ripples in the lake. If anyone is in a boat out in the middle of the lake fishing, watch out, we know what you’re talking about too!
