Okabena-Ocheda Watershed District Administrator Dan Livdahl captured this image of an algae bloom along Sailboard Beach on Lake Okabena Tuesday. Livdahl said the bloom, which gives the appearance of thick, blue-green paint along the lakeshore, likely settled along the shoreline because of warm air temperatures and a lack of wind.
