Kentucky Lake Treasures

One of the best things about early spring at the lake is walking along the shoreline while the lake levels are still low.  They haven't started raising the water to summer pool yet, so we like to walk the shore and see what kind of treasures have washed up since last fall.

Yesterday we walked about 3 miles and found some good stuff.  Want to see?

Chablis was loaded down with goodies....


A nice boat seat cushion, 2 boat buoys, a huge fish basket, a bucket, 2 fake owls....


another bucket, assorted fishing lures and bobbers, a 1964 Pepsi bottle in really good condition, a glass Gatorade bottle from the mid 1980's, an old mason jar, a brown bottle of some kind, a cool looking blue beer bottle and an old tin "Mr. Peanut" lid....


And a gorgeous turtle shell.  This one is a beauty!


I love walking around and looking for treasures.  I never know what we're going to find.

    1. Found the 2 plastic owls in completely different locations. People at the lake hang them from their docks to help keep birds from nesting over their boats.

  3. What a fun walk! When I used to go to Sanibel several times a year, I always took a trash bag (and of course a shell bag) with me on my sunrise and sunset walks. I picked up lots of interesting trash, but not much that could be reclaimed. Your walk sounds more like an archeology expedition! :)

    1. All the bottles and jars were found in the water and muck. I was shocked that the Pepsi bottle was in such good shape.
