We were anchored off Crystal Lake’s North Shore about where the City of Crystal Lake employees were pumping water while Crystal Lake was at flood stage last year.
And what did my son find?
Baby zebra mussels on rocks.
I found a larger one which was attached to a piece of seaweed.
My guess is that people who go wading where I did yesterday will have to wear rubber shoes in a couple of years or their feet will end up with lots of cuts from full grown zebra mussels.
They’ll probably be crowded out by the alien zebra mussels.
