Fake Lake

We have a lake in our neighborhood. It's very popular for joggers and dog walkers. It's not a real lake. It's our Fake Lake.

For being man-made, it certainly fools a lot of waterfoul. As I drove by today, a great blue heron flew right over my car. Gaggles of geese love to land into the wind. The fountain is intermittently active. It's lit at night by colored light.

Fake Lake is starting to seem more like a real lake. Reeds are growing along the west side. I'm starting to think a canoe or kayak or sunfish sailboat might not look too bad out on Fake Lake, with me inside.

I wonder if you could throw a line in and pull out some fish sticks...they're basically fake fish, right? It would only make sense.

Fishing is another pasttime I could do to pass the time. There must be fish (or fishsticks) in Fake Lake because why else would that Great Blue Heron be hanging out? Maybe next year, we could help stock Fake Lake with some trout, walleye, or bass!

Looks nice to me.

I just read Kit's comment, how funny!
