When Chignik Lake freezes, the magic begins. The ice hasn’t been solid enough for us to venture out on, and we’re heading for warmer weather – so it may not happen this year. Nonetheless, we’ve been enjoying watching some of our local River Otters from shore. Cute and inquisitive beings, the do quite a number on the lake’s population of finger-sized sculpins. Watching these otters glide through the water and slip gracefully into the ice lake makes for an entertaining break in your day. Hope your day is going well! Happy New Year from Jack & Barbra at The Lake!
