Trying to get the motor started....think it flooded
Was trying for a silhouette photo
Coming to shore (edge of what is left of the road)
Here you can see my uncle standing along the road edge. You can see how the road is washing/eroding away with every day that there is any kind of wind out of the north. The south shore is now starting to go too...there are a couple of sink holes on that shore. With the occasional wind out of the south it has been eating away at that edge now too.
I took this photo from about 1/3 of the way out towards the middle of the lake. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you can see the barricade posts to keep people from the edge of the road.
For as long as I can remember that slough has had water in it not as much as we have this year but it has always been full with the exception of a couple of really dry summers it had finally dried up, but didn't take too long to fill back up again. I never thought I would be out in a boat on the slough, had thought it would be neat to get a canoe out on the water.
All that was missing was the fish and our fishing rods.
