Angel Wings Over the Lake
One of our favorite evenings where angel wings were captured in the sky and reflection of Sarah Nell Lake, named after our matriarch’s late mother. The lake is 1.25 acres filled with natural springs Named in loving memory of Sarah Nell, Jan’s (matriarch) late mother who passed in 1972. Our lake is brimming with Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Crappie and a few Catfish.
