On August 25th John was out again on the prowl for any invasive aquatic plant or animal. He reports that he chose to patrol the length of Zone 6’s shoreline (not missing a single grid) by starting at the very top of it (grids #144 and 145) then dropping down into Zone #7 to cover just the very top of it (including grids #182,183,184 and 185.) At that juncture, he reports, he mused about visiting the Maidens of the Mist again but revised the notion as his shoulders had begun to rebel. Time had come to go home.
John stated that the 25th was a beautiful day with the lake’s water calm and clear. Furthermore, not a worrisome plant or animal did he find.
