|We began a planned walk through the woods towards the boardwalk.|
|The bright sky darkened. We saw streaks of lightening. Heard thunderclaps.|
|But we stopped to enjoy a pond covered with lotus blossoms. We've never managed to see the full blossoming before,|
though we've been to this park a number of times.
|We were soaked in the rain, but stopped at another part of the park in our soggy clothes. The clouds were scuttling|
towards the east, the line of storms moving over Lake Erie.
|From the lakeshore we could see another wetland full of lotus blossoms.|
|An osprey wearing a red leg ring landed in a tree as|
we were heading back to the car to return home.
