For many years, my husband and I have had the privilege of enjoying Mirror Lake, also known as #10 Pond, in Calais, to use our rowing shells and swim. We felt fortunate to have such a nice place nearby for these activities.
However, when we were there recently and my shell gliding through the water, the pollution was alarmingly noticeable. I prayed I would not capsize.
The water is so dirty I will not choose to swim there.
Mirror Lake has become a reflection not of the trees, clouds, and birds, but of the disregard and disrespect people have for the beauty that surrounds them.
