Sometimes, when frustrated by the development gold rush in Long Branch, I have to remind myself how fortunate we are to live so close to fantastic spots like Sam Smith Park. Yesterday we took The Partners for a long walk by the lake….
There is lots of fresh beaver activity in the area. The line of ice in the picture above runs out from the newly renovated and expanded beaver lodge.

Below you can see evidence of the fresh beaver activity. There is construction everywhere!
