Segment 6, Day 3 Elk Rapids->Eastport 15 miles
High of 65 degrees
I had some company along on part of this day.
Gerry Sell and her dogs, Miss Sadie and Cowboy, walked along part of the way. Gerry is from this area (and author of the blog TorchLakeViews.Wordpress.com) and she wanted to share her part of the lakeshore with me. We had a wonderful walk together and we talked about the flora and fauna we came across.
The shoreline had marshy patches along the way, mini estuaries for frogs (a mass of tadpoles in photo to left) and other lake life. Mallards and pintails along with geese and swans were trailed by their newly hatched broods.
My walk this day ended by Sonny's Torch Lake Market on 31 near the shores of Torch Lake (below).
