Notes

Water has receded significantly from flood height, by 10-15 ft and 5-6 depth, see pictures May 06 vs June 09. Water still 4 feet higher than usual or so, shoreline still expanded. Three men fishing, many people visiting the rock point. Men caught three fish, "white fish" and catfish. Spider webs visible, large insect like a grasshopper I'm not familiar with. One person fishing said an eel was caught there last year, reported to the Ministry. Kayakers visible and seagulls.
