Bona Dea traffic accident Update
Bona Dea has been sunny and hot and humid over the past several days. Rain has been threatened in the late afternoons but no rain. Sometime in the last few hours to current time, there was a traffic accident at the parking area where I usually park. This is on the Dike road between Bona Dea and Lake Dardanelle. These 5 photos shows the site of the accident as a vehicle went through the iron railings along the dike and the parking area and then down the embankment and close to or into the lake. There was a gasoline slick in the water near the bank. I fed the fish at the spillway and went on Swinging Bridge Trail and down by old Swinging Bridge and then over to Beaver Trail. There were some Blue Jay and Redwing Blackbirds and Eastern King birds around the park as well as several Northern Cardinals. A few single Wood Ducks in the water ponds. Also the past few days, Belted Kingfisher birds were hunting for fish.
