Photo Site #1 - East Pond Site
(I have been taking photos of this site
off and on since February of 2012.
For the last few years, I have a photo for 
almost every day.
Perhaps a long art project to be completed some day?)

I love your sit spot posts. I should comment more often. I should also try to do a sit spot everyday as well.
Happy 1000th sit spot!

Hi Robin, for some reason I have not been able to comment on your blog for ages. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

What is the most amount of water you have had in the East Pond? Is it a natural pond or man made?

Ontario Wanderer said...

Pat, After a winter of good snows the pond will be over all the area that is in the photo as it overflows the depression. Fleur-Ange tells me the pond was there before she bought the property so she does not know if it was dug or natural. I shall go through my photos to find a photo of it when it is really a pond. It's not been full for a couple of years.

That will be interesting to see!
