Winston Lake

In the city of Winston-Salem, there is the popular Salem Lake, which is a favorite spot for boating, fishing and taking walks. But while out on a drive one day, we discovered the existence of a Winston Lake! And we just had to check it out since neither of us had ever heard of it before.

It's a small, quiet little lake, quite different than Salem lake. But very secluded and peaceful. 




There were plenty of cute geese hanging around on that late November day

Almost all the trees had lost their leaves by then, so it was surprising to see fall colors again on whatever tree these were!


I'd love to build a little house on top of that hill.




Winston Lake was a nice quiet place to enjoy some nature. I've lived in this city for over 20 years and never knew this place existed. I wonder what I'll discover next!


This fabulous goose wishes everyone a good day!

  3. Such a pretty place! I always loved to go hiking around those kind of lakes when I lived in the US. I miss the US landscapes a lot actually. I wish I will be back there sometime soon to explore more of the states I havent been to yet - which are like 45 or so ;)
    Thanks a lot for your last comment : )

  5. What a beautiful place! I'm surprised to see the autumn colours too! Although, I just read a blog post about NYC and there's still some leaves on the trees there too! Where's the wintertime! I was hoping for snow at Christmas!

  6. The perfectly calm, mirror images of autumn trees against the water make me speechless. The lake looks so calm!! And there's nothing like those huge, tall southern pines.
