Reflections on Green Turtle Pond

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
Last Sunday we loaded up the canoe and drove the less than one mile to Green Turtle Pond. I just love having this small body of water so close to us. You can see how much the trees have changed at our house in the photo above.

It was a beautiful morning: blue skies and no wind. A perfect day for paddling!

The lake’s surface was very calm and perfect for reflecting the autumn colors.

A few other people were enjoying the beautiful morning too, mostly fishermen. Since Green Turtle is a wakeless lake, only trolling motors on boats are allowed. This makes for a very peaceful paddle.

As we paddled around I couldn’t decide how to place my camera. Should I take the sky and trees or should I go with the reflection? I have to admit that the the reflections won out over and over again.

Either way, the colors were stunning.

Paddling close to the shore I spied this beautiful paper wasp’s nest.

Some trees couldn’t decide what color to be.

We paddled into my favorite part of the lake, the little cove.

And with one last look, our little trip came to an end.
