And shut out to boot. Lake Jocassee is closed, period.

The fact, and a good fact it is, of so little private land around the lake means absolutely no public access if the three ramps at Devils Fork State Park are closed. It approaches surreal to see the lake so close by, and yet be so totally off limits. I got in the best day ever watching the spring loon migration, just in the nick of time. Now the loons, the gulls, the eagles have the lake to themselves. No bass boats going by at a hundred miles an hour. No dreaded wake boats creating more erosion along the shore. Now they will have to be put back in their cages for a while. I guess it’s not all bad after all. It’s painful, still, to drive by and not be able to get any closer. I lean in when I do, hoping to hear one more loon call before they’re gone for the year. ~B
