It may not seem totally drained when you look at the front section of the pond, the part we're used to gazing at from Cottage Street and Williston, but the pond is down to a trickling brook on the east end. That side did not disappoint. Can't wait to see the giant earthmoving equipment go to town on the muck.
As you see above, the fishermen have realized smaller pond means easier to catch. Not sure if that's actually true, but they've definitely been trying. They don't seem deterred by the muck and low tide smell at all.
It was a little too hot this afternoon to spent too much time exploring the new Easthampton mudflats, but there are definitely some intriguing items already being unearthed (I'm wondering if you turn this you'd change time like in the show Lost. Come on, I dare ya...)
