Lots of lake flies made the spiders fat and contentI was planning on just chilling out at camp, read a book, sit on shore, enjoy the wildlife and sounds…I forgot the book at home, bummer. So I gathered lots of wood, for after dark fire worshiping. I did the routine…set up the tent, hung the pack and found a large flat rock on shore to lay back and listen…a flock of swans, wings making the air sing as they go by, Caspian Terns with their raucous cry, red-wing blackbirds, of course geese and seagulls are ever present on any shoreline, be it Island or Main.
Newport is isolated enough on the eastern tip of Door County so few motorized sounds pollute the air. Once in a while, you’ll hear a plane or a distant car.
