Evie and I finished our drive to Eagle Lake , Canada today around 2:00 in the afternoon. The temperature is 51 sunny and windy, when we pulled into the driveway. The air is fresh and 90% of the ice is out on Waldhof Bay . There are small pieces and flows of old rotten, black ice moving around with the wind. On the bigger part of the lake around The Barberpole there is still a fair amount of ice. But, the cracks were 10 yards wide, and the ice will be gone in a couple of days. The lake level is about 12 inches lower then last November, when we left for the sunny south. The bush is dry and the firefighting crews are gearing up for fire season already. I might put the 14ft aluminum boat in the water and see if I can't pick up a Laker over around the point on Sunday.
