On Monday before all hell broke loose, I stopped in Conway, to get a few shots of the ice melting on the lake! This is a diffrent lake, obviously, than the one that I posted last week sometime that my mom lives on! Here someone is trying to get their fish shanty off the ice before it melts! They had it all the way up to the shore! I hope they made it! For ice fishing, people spud a hole in the ice to catch fish through! They put a shanty or a shack over that hole so that they can keep warm and have a place to sit while they fish away! Crazy people drive their trucks out there to put the shanty on and off, and to get back and forth to shore! Most use snowmobiles or four wheelers! Some just simply walk! Okay, I didn't want this to be about ice fishing, but that is the way it is going! Let's get back on track! You can see patches of water on top of the ice! Pretty soon all that ice will melt and sink and we will just see a very pretty lake and a sandy shore! I am glad to see these signs of spring!
If you want to see who owns the shanty, check this out in full size! They have to put their name and town on the building so that the Conservation Officers can identify them! You can also see the ice melting and the beautiful homes on the other side of the lake from where I took this! (:
