Lake Mulwala Pt 2

Hi Everybody, I havent disappeared! Just been waiting to get a few photo's of the water flowing into the Lake again .I tryed to take them standing as close to the same spots as photo's in previous blog in case you would like to compare them.

A few people have ask how do they empty the lake, I can honestly say I don't know. I have ask a few people and all I get is they think the weir gates are closed futher up stream to stop the water flowing into the Lake .We know the gates are opened on the Yarrawonga weir to release and drain the lake. .

I took all these photo's a few days apart to show the water starting to flow and slowly rise.

Lake Mulwala is expected to be full by the end of August early September.
Once again click to enlarge any or all photo's

I took these two photo's Sunday under grey sky and a very cold 9celius still day,not even a ripple on the water.
Further around the lake a few fisherman trying there luck to catch Murray Cod.
This one causing the only ripple.
The Swim area of lake I took these 2 Above and below a couple days apart

One of the many logs, stumps nearly submerged
Boat ramp Yarrawonga Victoria still well out of water.
Standing on Boat ramp in Yarrawonga
A view from Boat ramp Yarrawonga all the stumps are disappearing under the water
Standing on boat ramp Mulwala N.S.W.No sign of the green rubbish bin its covered by the water.
See last post
Looking from Mulwala across the lake You can see the Paradise queen on the Victorian side Yarrawonga.
You can see the water mark on the tree still about 8 to 10 ft still to go..
Love the colour of the sky at sunset over looking the lake.
The End.
I promise to get around to visiting you all in the next few days.

How interesting to see the same lake now with water ! It looked a littly ghosty in your post below ! So by end of August it will be full again. I wonder why they do it, did I miss something ?

I agree with Gattina, it does look a little ghosty without water. Again they are fabulous pictures and I love the sunset ones they are lovely.

Well, we are having summer weather here. This month has been great, in the 80's F. No 90's all month of July, which the weatherman said has only happened 6 other years in July. I hope the warmer weather will soon come your way. But, I suppose you are having the weather I get in January.

Jen, stay warm, and have a glass of some of that wine you bought on vacation a month or two ago. haha, Maybe that will warm you up? ;)

Isn't it amazing what they can do, empty or fill up a lake! It certainly does make it look very different without and with water. I so enjoyed looking at the photos and yes, that sunset was just beautiful!! Stay warm my friend:-) xoxo

The lake looks completely different with water in it. Glad to see that boat is floating again, she looked rather forlorn with no water around her. As for those sunsets...glorious. No more need be said...

Interesting post, Jan. Thanks for that.

Dear Jan ~~ Thank God your results were good. I have never been called back for a biopsy after having tests
So you and the family must have so worried and the specialists results
such a relief. I know I am so very relieved for you. Glad you got a laugh over the Irish war plans.
The lake at Mulwala looked so bare
and will be better filled. Did the frosts kill the algea? Sp?
Glad you are taking it easy and staying inside. Keep warm and rested dear friend. Much Love,

Hi Jenette, What interesting pictures, the lake seems to have filled up pretty quick. You asked about you Fuchsia's. I wouldn't cut them back if you are going to be getting any more freezing temps. I usually do mine when I can see the first sign of life after the winter. Glad to hear the tests came back ok.

Nice to see the water tricking back to a decent level. Looking forward to photos showing it completely full. Those last two photos are grand. What a glorious sunset. Peace

Hi Jan, I know you are glad to get water back into your lake. We sure were ours when they drained it to repair the dam. Hurricane Rita damaged it with very high and hard pounding waves.

From the early pictures to the sun setting, it seems you might have been having a picnic out there. I hope you had some company or a radio or book to read.

These were good pictures,

Hi Jen, I hope the lake is green weed free after all the effort of draining it, etc. Interesting, I noticed the birds sitting on the grass looking at the boat, probably wondering what the heck is going on?

-2c is about 28f that is pretty cold I didn't realize it got that cold in Vic I can see why you are longing for summer. We here in Maine are wondering where summer is, we went from winter to eternal spring, no summer here on the island. We have had nothing but rain and fog since April.

I am glad to hear you are well. Marjorie

Thanks for visiting, i'm enjoying your lakes views-so different from my lake which is now open again to the ocean so should remain full.
Love Slim Dusty and I must admit a glass of wine (or2) as well.
