High and Dry

Every winter they lower Lake Austin, the second lake in the series of man made lakes on the Little Colorado, to let docks be repaired and vegetation be cleared. These boats are high and dry and, if you look carefully, you can see a line of birds at the new water's edge doing their best to clean up what the lowered water has exposed for them to eat. It was gray and drizzly and gloomy and cold yesterday and the mud added a grim note here.
