I think these two are searching for Humphrey Bogarte and Kathryn Hepburn! On the canal near New Springs.

Good photo, they remind me of the Cockleshell Heroes in those boats, another good film.

They wasted a lot of money clearing this weed last year, and now its all back again
Here is an historical video, never before seen capturing the weed removing event.

It could possibly be the lack of dredging that causes this weed to come back year after year because just cutting it back doesn't do any good - it's like having a hair cut to this weed and it just grows back twice as thick . The roots have to be dredged out completely but the resources that CRT have probably won't justify the cost. Lovely photo Dennis.
