Perfect sunsets are the norm up in Lick Creek during the spring and tonight was no exception.

Last Good Weekend for Eagle Watching
The eagles were very active this weekend. The babies in the nest were very large, but still had black heads. They were spreading their wings looking like they were getting ready to leave the nest. Beautiful, majestic birds. Can’t get enough pictures of them, but will have to wait until next year now.
The are at least five eagles nests around the lake that you can really only see early in the year before the leaves fill in. Nothing more enjoyable than watching the eagles protect and care for their young.
A cool 53 degrees out on the lake, but a beautiful day!
Chill of an Early Fall
Not very chilly, but a beautiful fall day out on the lake as the trees begin to change colors.

Took a drive down to the Cannon Dam area where we enjoyed walking below the dam and up to the M.W. Boudreaux Visitor Center. There are spectacular views around the dam, but the best views are from the visitor center lookout areas.
This is the first in a series of our favorite Mark Twain Lake coves. It was here that I used my new spyglass (father’s day present from Katie and Chet) to make sure there were no pirates hidden in the back of the cove.
The cove is located behind the Spaulding Boat Ramp. We like this cove because it winds back to where you are not visible from the lake and it blocks the wind well on windy days.
This was our first time watching the fireworks from the lake (part of the annual Mark Twain Lake Rodeo). It was a beautiful evening with at least a hundred boats waiting for the event to begin. We anticipated issues with that many boats trying to get off of the lake at the same time, but there were no issues at all.
Our favorite time to cruise the lake is at sunset. Like all of the Missouri lakes, the sunsets at Mark Twain Lake are absolutely stunning. No matter how many times we see the sunsets, I am compelled to take pictures to capture that moment since no two sunsets are ever the same.
