I've been home for a few weeks (and had these images uploaded even longer) but have just gotten around to writing anything - too many things I've been doing! Anyway, things on the water front are getting a little bit better. At the end of November, pipes and pumps were put in place to top the lake up a bit, although they don't seem to have done too much since then - perhaps a few inches although we've also had an inch of rain recently (w00t!) and cooler than average temperatures (w00t again! 40 degree days just suck).

The "fresh" water also appeared to attract a lot of the carp...

Sailing officially ended last weekend with rather blustery conditions. A stark contrast to the dead-calm conditions of most weekends prior I guess. I've also started (paid) work so don't have as much spare time during the week again, along with a few projects I wish to complete before Uni resumes next February so have plenty to do between now and then. Don't forget the Lake Bonney gallery contains all the photos we've taken while the water has been receding :)

Comments

were the carp swimming towards the fresh water from the lake, i thought they had mostly died. they mustn't of liked the lake water and be trying to escape, got to feel sorry for anything else living in there, or sailing on top of it :P

We went out there again roughly when I made this post, and all the carp had all but disappeared. From what I heard, a lot of them were pulled out and sold. They did seem to like the fresher water though which is why they all grouped near the pipes.
