On Friday November 29th 2019 I wrote, 'Work begins December 1rst by the town of Goderich Ontario to restore and strengthen their damaged Lake Huron shoreline. Cove Road and pedestrian access leading to Rotary Cove and the dog walking area will be closed at the water treatment plant until further notice. I'm guessing this project could last a month or two depending on weather with it's Winter storms. The next photos I take in that area may show a fully restored shoreline. ' 'Fast Forward':: It is now nearly seven months later and today they finally opened 'most' of the road to Rotary Cove and it's beach area. It is a trial run however. If people flood in and make a mess of things like they did at Sauble Beach last weekend, Rotary Cove will be closed again until further notice. Not wanting to miss out on seeing how the shoreline restoration work has come along, and before a whole lot of people show up, Pheebs and I were there for a look-see by 9 a.m.
I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THIS LARGE MARBLE BOULDER BACK IN PLACE AT THE DOG WALKING AREA IN GODERICH'S ROTARY COVE
|DON'T NOW IF THEY WILL RE-CONSTRUCT THE ERODED SHORELINE FURTHER SOUTH ALONG THE DOG WALKING SECTION OR NOT|
|FROM WHAT I CAN FIGURE THE LARGE DECORATIVE MARBLEDED BOULDER IS BACK IN THE SAME PLACE IT WAS BEFORE BEING WASHED INTO THE LAKE LATE LAST YEAR|
|THAT'S QUITE A BUILD-UP OF LARGE BOULDERS ALONG THE SHORELINE|
|I LIKE THE NEW PARKING ARRANGEMENT|
|SO VERY DIFFERENT THAN BEFORE|
|HAVING PHEEBS UP ON THESE BOULDERS WITH ME REMINDED ME SO MUCH OF OUR MANY ROCK SCRAMBLES IN NEW MEXICO, ARIZONA, AND CALIFORNIA OVER THE YEARS|
|I'VE ALWAYS BELIEVED SHE'S GOT A LITTLE MOUNTAIN GOAT IN HER BECAUSE SHE IS A TRUE ROCK SCRAMBLER|
|YEP, TWO THUMBS UP FOR THE RESTORATION JOB IN THE DOGGY WALKING AREA AT ROTARY COVE:))|
|FROM HERE THE BOARDWALK WILL CONTINUE FOR NEARLY A MILE ALONG THE SHORE TO ST. CHRISTOPHERS BEACH ACROSS THE HARBOR ENTRANCE FROM THE SALT MINE|
|IN THE FOREGROUND IS THE GRAVELY PATH THE NEW BOARDWALK WILL FOLLOW AND BEHIND THAT SHOWS HOW THEY HAVE EXTENDED THE SHORELINE OUT INTO THE LAKE ALONG THIS SECTION|
|ANOTHER SECTION WHERE THE SHORELINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED FURTHER OUT INTO THE LAKE|
|THE NEW BOARDWALK WILL ROLL RIGHT ON THROUGH HERE BETWEEN THE ROAD AND THE LAKE|
|EVEN A LARGE LAKE FREIGHTER AT THE SALT MINE DOCK THIS MORNING|
One day a college professor of Psychology was greeting his new college class. He stood up in front of the class and said, "Would everyone who thinks he or she is stupid please stand up?"After a minute or so of silence, a young man stood up. "Well, good morning. So, you actually think you're a moron?" the professor asked.The kid replied, "No sir, I just didn't want to see you standing there all by yourself."
