Just for general information. Stow Lake was named for W. W. Stow, who gave $60,000 for its construction (quite a lot in those days!). Stowe is a Public School in the UK, there is also a Stowe in Vermont....both might be cold at this time of year, but I think I'd prefer the Stowe in Vermont....English Public Schools having a traditionally unpleasant reputation, some aspects of which I can relate to?
Nevertheless, the birds seem to love Stow Lake, no matter how it is spelled....after all they still keep on coming!
Enjoy your many walks there...I do!
