Croydon's New Residents

Be careful when driving by Spectacle Pond a family of Canadian Wild Geese often crosses there. You can spot them on the lawn across from the pond, Mama, Papa and three babies.  


Rocky Bound

As always winter has washed up nasty leaves, branches etc. at Rocky Bound. I started cleaning some of it on Saturday, and I put a small picnic table under the tree. If anyone wishes to help rake, the rakes are on the side of the port-a-potty. Any help is appreciated. Let us all enjoy the public beach.
