This is a before and after picture of my grandparents cottage on the Dyke Road, where we used to spend our summers, and all the family would get together. In the left picture you will see all the sand on the beach with the dock going out in the water where we would play and dive off and swim. The right picture shows what it looked like after the big storms took the beach away. Many a summer my father would pour cement accross the front to save the cottage from the lake, but each year we would go back out and find that the front had sunk down in the sand, and he would start all over again. It was a timeless job trying to keep cement and rocks built up across the front. The lake took many cottages out, after my grandparents passed away my mother bought the cottage, but soon it was to hard to keep up so they sold it. The cottage is still standing the latest owners had started reconstructing it, have all kinds of supplies inside not finished, and they havent been to the cottage for years. So there it sits until another big storm, takes it out into the lake.
