Hi everyone, we’re back in action today from our much needed break where we got away from it all and enjoyed some time at the beach. We had a great time and took loads of pictures. I’ll share some of those soon including some of the gorgeous ocean front homes we spied. They were to die for.
Anyway when we got home we saw one of the most anticipated sites around the lake. It’s probably something that most people don’t ever see. I know, I certainly never had before I moved to our lake.
It’s called a weed harvester and it’s one of the most welcomed sights on our lake. Given the size, our lake is relatively shallow which means light is able to reach the bottom in many parts of the lake it also make for relatively warm water in the summer months which is wonderful for swimming and also wonderful for lake weeds to sprout from the bottom virtually covering the lake which is not so good for swimming.
In July each year the weed harvesters come out to scoop up the floating debris and weeds leaving a substantially less weedy lake in their wake.
They pull right up to the edge of the land and make quick work of clean up. What would take us hours to pull out by hand is done in mere minutes.
Do you have any cool operations in your area that others might not know about? I’d love to hear.
