Forgotten marina treasures in Rutheron and marina pix

"Pandemonium" is visible in the right distance on her mooring in the cove southeast of the Heron Lake Marina. In front of her is a courtesy dock segment belonging to the Heron Lake State Park and at left is another row of mooring buoys. Recently, the usual wildlife at Heron Lake has been joined by some unwelcome visitors: a herd of cattle has been breaking through neglected fences almost daily and making a stampede for the shores of the cove.

Quality boats: The Bayfield 25 "Lady Bug" (red, left background) and Ranger 26 "Ciao Bella" (green, front right) are moored in the cove to the northeast of the marina. A floating dock structure can be seen between them.

Gerald, at the beginning of his term of dock master duty last Sunday, July 6, strings rope handrails between gangway sections at the Heron Lake Marina.

The black-plastic-covered styrofoam floats seem to be a precursor to the type of floats now used for the marina.
