Treasure hunting

We spent the Memorial Day weekend at Mom and Dave’s with Gramma and Grampa Great, enjoying good weather, great company and even a bit of treasure hunting…

The lake is a bit lower recently, and the banks hold thousands of glass remnants, polished from decades in the water and sand. The pieces are from vessels held in the old cellars and homes that were abandoned when Republican City was moved to accommodate the reservoir construction. (Anecdotally, the reservoir was was built with the help of Grampa Great–he spent a summer clearing trees and other debris from the area the lake was to cover.)

Ava and Olivia were pretty pleased with their pretty finds.
