Spent a relaxing afternoon at a private beach on the lake with friends. The views were beautiful. It was a nice sunny day and we all really enjoyed ourselves.

The view of the lake is fabulous in autumn when the foliage turns into different colors. We walked around the lake using 2 hrs.

Beautiful sunny fall day to capture the colors of the trees reflected in the lake. So beautiful!! The beach is small but pleasant. Not so easy to walk around the lake but plenty joggers and cyclists enjoying. Easy jaunt to Hopkins winery from here.
