School is Back in Session

Today’s post features a couple of images I captured from our boat dock at the Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) a couple of days ago. While wandering around the dock, I saw multiple “hot spots”, where the water was “zig-zagging” around, in beautiful spirals. As one of these spirals approached the dock, I could see […]
