As I was walking to the beach, a neighbor told me about it or I probably would have missed the sign.
Having just been through two nights of hearing how Crystal Lake’s purity has been constant over the last twenty years and knowing that there are no longer any septic tanks serving homes around Crystal Lake, I had no problem letting my son and a friend go swimming.
Neither did the young family–visiting Grandma across the street.
Two more teen girls enjoyed Crystal Lake as they would have any other day.
As did the seven ducks—no longer ducklings.
And the dog and his master.
Did they have fun jumping off the pier near the boat ramp!
So did his niece, who threw a ball for the dog to chase and then jumped off the end of the pier herself.
I couldn’t tell if she were emulating the dog or her uncle, who jumped off after his dog several times.
