E11 Water Skiing and Wine

Join in the fun at Alum Creek. Wine, cheese, veggies, dips (in the lake of course) and beer just might be hidden on board. Often a reluctant crew member is forced into the water by a couple beers, and has the renewed courage to get a lesson or outperform the captain on his slalom ski. A saucer, kneeboard, and maybe even a tube are typically ready for frivolity. Background music by Judy Collins, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell. Satire from the Capitol Steps should have some Trump trashing by summer. Leave Paul's at 10am, at the South East boat ramp at 11:30, off water at 5pm. Bring your special snack if desired.

E12 Artist Date

We’ll gather at Cornerstone Deli for coffee or tea, then stroll the antique strip of Clintonville in search of artistic inspiration. With writerly thoughts, notebooks and cell phone pictures in hand, we’ll adjourn to the Park of Roses to enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch and, if we’re so inclined, put pen to paper. In case of rain, lunch at my home.

E15 Guided Twilight Swamp Hike in the Mating Season for Fireflies and Chorus Frogs
Invalid Image Link

It's a Big Sexy Time in the swamp for Lightning Bugs and Gray Tree Frogs. You can see a few fireflies here and there on any summer night but the vast majority of firefly flashes for the year are concentrated for about a week's time in early to mid June. It's firefly mating season and there is an EXPLOSION of firefly light that can at times be simply astonishing. The musical accompaniment is provided by many hundreds of male Gray Tree Frogs on the make. The firefly show starts at around 9:30 but peaks between 10:00 and 10:30. We will meet in the parking lot at the Wilma Schiermeier, Olentangy River Wetland Research Park at 352 W. Dodridge Street, Columbus, OH 43202 and walk the under 1 mile loop with some longer options. There are many thousands of starlings roosting nearby and it's also not uncommon to see raccoons and bats and sometimes owls. Flashlights are discouraged but red lights are fine. We can provide red lights for about 10 people and a couple of kinds of bug spray.
