Not Quite Surf City

I took a little trek today down toward Warren Co. NC and back up to the dam on Hwy. 4. In the 1950s, the Dan and Staunton/ Roanoke Rivers were dammed up and it created Buggs Island Lake (on maps as Kerr Lake, but don't call it that around here — somebody like me will bite your head off!) The John H. Kerr Dam & Resevoir creates hydroelectric power for the area. There are lots of parks, boat ramps, scenic areas, picnic tables, etc. all along the shore near the dam and one of those is where I got this picture. Talk about having a beach all to yourself!

One of the things I find almost always photogenic is water, wherever it may be (ocean, lakes, ponds, puddles) so expect to see a lot of that here! Heck, I even have a picture of a toilet bowl in some old photo album somewhere!
