After dropping off some materials to a machine shop I decided to take a little drive over to the Quabbin Reservoir. This is a vast man made lake which was created in the 1920's (they removed some little towns to do it) and it became the drinking water supply for the city of Boston. Because it is such an important lake it is very restricted so you can't swim in it. They do allow boating and fishing but when I go out into nature I don't like the feeling that I am being watched and then arrested if I dip a toe in the water so I have never gone fishing there. It is a beautiful place though and I should go back when the leaves are on the trees.

    Do they make the boaters wash their boats before they are magically levitated into the lake and of course they are manually powered by rowing? ;-)
