Wordless Wednesday

This is the lake that’s centrally located in our neighborhood.  One would never guess that in the midst of suburbia, three miles from three grocery stores, several fast-food joints, and a handful of gas stations, there are 25 acres tucked away for the private use of those who are in the know.

  1. Anybody know the difference between a lake and a pond? Area? Depth? The dictionary I used (couldn’t find anything on Google) said a lake was a body of water of considerable size, and that a pond was smaller than a lake. When does a lake stop being a lake and become a pond? Hmmmmmm?

  2. A pond is shallower and has plants growing all the way across the bottom. This usually means a lake is larger in size but not necessarily. So a lake stops being a lake when plants can grow all the way across the bottom of the lake. At least this is what I remember from my freshwater ecology class in college.

    1. Sarah, I’ve always wondered that… we call this a “lake” but it seems more like a pond to me, in size, anyway. Especially when you think of, like, the Great Lakes or Raystown Lake or any number of biggies.
