Burned The Evidence

8 AM looking out at the river

As the sun rose and spread west

The light shone on all the work we have done

Yesterday I got some much needed rest

I still can not believe the damage one Beaver has done

I raked while he cut

He stacked while I trimmed trees

You could tell we didn’t spend much time sitting on our butt

So as I stood here with camera in hand the only word that came to mind was  gee

We really took the bull by the horns on this one

The water is down almost to where it should be

The Beaver have NOT WON

Guess who has been sleeping ME

The Woods Around The Lake

Pawtuckaway Lake

 

Just  six  more weekends before they close the State Park,  for camping.

They will again draw down this lake so the State Park and others with property along its shores can

fix their places up before winter rolls in,  like only New England winters can.

I think I spoke of this draw down,  you know where it goes right?

Sadly it will end up on my lower lawn, yes the beautiful spot that saw so much water, for so many years.

I have made calls with  all the rain we got overnight to beg them to use some common sense, I pray they will.

They empty a whole cove, one whole end into my little stream.  This I see as crazy.  One year I had to laugh.

I was taking photos in these woods and came out at the boat launch and there  were men, with boats on trailers,

scratching their heads as to where all the water was.  I told them it was sitting in my yard.  They too thought the

practice of doing this year after year was insane.  That early spring  the only thing you could do was Kyack or Canoe.

Motor boats could not navigate those rocky areas.  They left angry , as angry as I was when I went home and saw my land being eroded

to save the STATE Property!

 

I no longer  will stay silent.

Should they do it again I will call in the Newspapers and TV Station here.

There is no reason for taxpayers to pay for land that the state keeps taking more and more of.
