On the web site Lake Skinner advertises a 1.5 mile walk around the park. The trail was not clearly marked. There was no map available but Kevin and I walk around with our camera and binoculars. We had a good time looking for birds and enjoying the scenery.

I’m sorry to say the blue footed booby is gone from the lake. Kevin and I spotted a juvenile blue footed booby here last time we visited.

I woke up to these balloon being blown up near the campground. It was a awesome sight to hear and see these big balloons being blown up.
