Boise "Lakewood" Lake

Lakewood lake is in the midst of a thickly wooded area. This is a private lake and there are warning signs prohibiting public from entry without permission. This is adjacent to the Lakewood Montessori School and  falls in one of my walking beats. I quietly sneaked into this private lake on a couple of occasions and spend considerable time. Weather was bright and sunny & glorious, the lake was sparkling and the water was crystal clear. The lake teeming with birds mostly Mallards - males,females & chicks. Once I saw a few Canadian geese - there was a unique pair that appeared to be romancing. They had probably alighted on this lake for a short break before resuming their long flight to some distant country. The lake was simply a paradise on earth.
