|Beautiful walking trails|
We have been watching the progress of all the construction that has been happening. It started when they drained the swimming lake just after Labor Day. Then a group of workers came in and took all the railing off the swimming dock, and started construction on something that looks like...I don't even know how to describe what they have constructed. It's just weird looking.
|A ReDUCKulous situation!|
Now, there are Hertz rent-a-cops posted at various locations to keep people from doing I don't know what, and they have added county police as well. Since they have altered our walking route we are forced to walk from the front gate, across the dam between the fishing and swimming lakes to the side gate entrance, make a U-turn and back to the front gate. They have erected these awful green tarps on poles to keep people from seeing the movie set. Who cares what they are doing. At one point in the tarps there is a place you can peep through to see what is happening in the lake where all the filming is going to occur. The other morning we peeked to see what was happening and the police blew his fog horn at us. Can you believe that?!

The sad part, our county is only making $80,000 for the use of the facility, not to mention the cost of all those Hertz rent-a-cops and the county police that are over there 24/7 with the engines on their vehicles running 24/7. How much is that costing the taxpayers of our county?
Needless to say, we will be glad when the movie people have vacated the park and we can return to our normal route of our daily walk.
We think they are going to put blinders on all the geese so they can't see what's happening on the movie set as they fly over on their way to the fishing lake.

I think I'll take my camera tomorrow to see if the police honks his horn at me again.
