We left the heat index of over 100 degrees in Deltaville and drove to MI where it was dipping into the high 40's at night already. The days never hit even 80 degrees and we ended up wearing long pants and sweatshirts all day and sleeping under a down comforter. Boy have we gone soft! The water was actually warmer than the air here at the cottage.
We got in and dug up the rocks that the ice had moved around from our shoreline. We piled them up and realized how much damage the high lake levels have done over the years. We stopped at the recycling area and loaded the van with some more rocks to dump on the shore to bolster the ones there already. The rocks give the waves somewhere to expend their energy and deposit any floating debris before they smash into the dirt shore. They are good for the waterfront.
We try to move the rocks that fall out onto the sand back onto the shoreline.
All better now.
On our second trip to the rock pile, the attendant came out and told us we couldn't take any more rocks. This is the same lady who'd told us earlier that we could take them as she was tired of looking at them and they'd been just sitting there for at least two years. But she'd mentioned to her boss that she'd told us it was ok to take them and his boss immediately rescinded that permission, stating the township was "going to use them". We have no idea what for; we aren't sure we even believe it, but we acknowledged the new directive and had to be happy with the rocks we had. Small town politics may be at work here, so Jason will ask the township supervisor (he was the one who said we couldn't take the rocks) what the township is going to use them for. I'm interested to hear his answer.
We contacted some old friends here at the lake and met them at Fred's Restaurant in downtown Roscommon. It has 1/2 price pizzas on Wednesdays and the place was packed! Our pizzas filled us up. Fred's had been around forever, and even though it's changed hands and is under new ownership, they are still known for their pizzas.
