View of the Swamp
These pictures were all taken the same week, four different years. How neat if I could have taken them the same day and been a bit more consistent with the same view, but I didn't. The week is March 20 - 27th, and the years from Top to Bottom are 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010. We bought this property in the fall of 1986. How extraordinary if I could have been taking pictures from the same spot all these years!! In those first years, hubby and I walked across on mostly solid ground. When children arrived and were walking on their own, we would walk across and have a picnic on the rock, easily visible in the bottom left picture. During their middle school years, the beavers had begun in earnest and the kids would walk across on logs scattered across the growing swamp like pick-up-sticks. These past several years, you have to wait till it's frozen. New neighbors who live closer to the edge have ventured out in snow mobiles this winter, well, last week actually!
