Map with Names for Special Places on the Lake

For the four or so years that I have been walking around this lake, I've been imagining having names for the many stretches, nooks and inlets, so it'd be easy to share with people where we saw what, and to notice what changes in the different spots.

I still imagine having a quiz of all the flora and fauna we can find at the lake, with your pictures coming in and adding to a directory of wildlife there. Then children, and even keenagers, could test their knowledge of the names and ways of nature at Lake Pine.

The map is from the Town of Apex Parks - but I've added little labels and arrows to different places I've seen wildlife and that I wanted to name, like Turtle Inslet - where the most turtles hang out and logg!

Maybe you can suggest some? And hopefully I'll have time to add more and update this map.

It's amazing the sanctuary a place like this provides in an otherwise bustling metropolis! I have a small lake close to work that I visit during my lunch hour and it has always proved to be the best medicine for a stressful day.
