Our photo editor Marian Fuchs reports:
The other day I took a few pictures at the Lake, after the construction of the barrier. I think these pictures show that the recent construction will not significantly detract from our enjoyment of the Lake — in fact, the gabions look rather attractive. The third picture shows the mesh that the crew have spread over the areas of grass that they damaged; in time the seed in the mesh will sprout and make the grassy area whole again. The two shadows are Jacob and me.
Hopefully the lake itself will fill soon.
