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.
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.
