Excitement Among the Calm

While enjoying a nice quiet evening at the lake, one unusual event caused quite the excitement. More and more people are putting their boats in at Sunset Bay which truly disturbs the birds. But this time I could tell something was different. This man was moving with speed and purpose. After being asked to please not disturb the birds, he stated that he was going to help his wife who had fallen into the lake. He said nothing else and then disappeared. Well, we called for help. After a short wait, the Fire Water Rescue team arrived and began assessing the situation. They never made it into the water because their raft popped as they were airing it up. With a large group of firefighters and police officers watching, the man and his wife appeared from the direction he had headed toward. And sure enough, he had helped his wife who had probably tipped her boat and fallen in. I didn’t take photos of the whole scene because I am more interested in the birds. 🙂

I was able to get a few shots before and after all of this excitement. It was a very nice evening.
