Summer days

On the floating swan are Oliver Spanton, 5, and Kylee Spanton, 8; on the T-Rex is Levi Hancock, 7; and Ammon Bishop is on the floating bed, as they enjoy a late June Saturday on Lower Bucks Lake. On the unicorn is Charlotte Spanton, 7, enjoying the cold waters of the lake. It was summertime for the Chilcoot residents. It was a busy beach area as some lake users pulled a boat ashore with a morning’s catch of trout. Others enjoyed games and conversation as a few dogs ran here and there enjoying their freedom.
