CRUISING AT WELLS COLLEGE

We've spent the past few days with Wells College students on the lake, cruising from beautiful Aurora, New York. Its a treat to get up to the northern end of Cayuga Lake once in a while, and we've been rewarded with gorgeous conditions! The lake is looking pretty good, but the water is even warmer, with temperatures in the 70's down to 10 meters or more(!). We are also seeing light blooms of blue-green algae near the surface. These appear as greenish clouds, which review small particles upon closer inspection.
