Cleansed, but empty

You may remember last year my posts about the lake being drained and cleaned.

The bales of hay had been left at one end to soak up the sludge as pushed towards them by the bobcats, though the ducks and seagulls didn’t mind that much as they had somewhere to sit or shelter from the wind, and despite the oily appearance, surprisingly it didn’t stink.

We wondered how long it would be before we got our lake back, and recently the contaminated bales have been removed and they have seeded the areas where the machines had churned up the grass.
Apparently the last time the lake was drained, it was refilled with sea water, and after a while stank to high heaven, so this time it has been decided to let nature do Her Thing and let the lake fill with rain water.
And there lies the problem.

The above were taken in May and July 2018.

This was taken with my phone two days ago.


These were taken in July last year.
These are from two days ago too.

As was this, the boating end of the lake.
Not only are there no boats, but at around 4 inches in depth, insufficient water to accommodate them at the moment.

Maybe we won’t be seeing these this year, especially as we’ve heard the franchise hasn’t been renewed.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Sounds like it could be different this year.
