Where is that fire truck?
I distinctly recall unearthing a stamped steel Tonka/Nylint fire truck a few times at GL. Not a full excavaion, but just getting to the top of it and then re-burying it for next year.
Celeste and I took a stab at finding it. No luck, but I had fun digging with her. And the horseflies weren't too bad. Next time we'll grab a garden shovel from the barn/garage. But that might be cheating.
Note that the lawn has been encroaching on the beach. With record lake levels from heavy June rains, the owners didn't put fresh sand down this year. There's also some erosion close to the lake. The water was so high that the lake was closed to all motorized boats for about ten days this summer.
