Pier on northeast side of White Rock Lake

If you only go to White Rock Lake on, say, a sunny Saturday morning, chances are your attention is fixed on dodging large groups of speeding cyclists or trying to get that ice cream truck tune out of your head. Those who have had the pleasure of spending time at The Rock when it is not crowded know it can be a different world.

You Tube filmmaker Hunter Starnes shares the quiet beauty of our lake, shutting out all the crowded foot races, cyclist-runner arguments, construction, etcetera, and focusing on the community of birds and waterfowl and aging trees and the occasional fisherman.

Take three minutes to watch this today. It will make you feel lucky to live here.
