DRAINING THE SWAMP
That phrase has a different meaning up North. Along Highway 129 is a swamp that is always interesting to look at plus it has a beaver den on it. It is not usually a deep body of water and the levels fluctuate because of a beaver dam. It is quite large and bulky so it kept the water back and we had a nice swamp. But every spring it seems the beaver dam is breached by humans. You can tell because it is quite a large chunk perfectly straight edged chunk out of the dam and the water has receded. As in the past the beavers always manage to rebuild their dam and I am very sure that in the next couple of weeks we will be treated to a beaver dam construction.
I have seen a moose in this swamp. You would think...
