I took the beautiful SASH out on Bullen Merri today in search of the lost ww1 cannon , we arrived at the boat ramp to find a broken stubby all over the ramp, people everywhere in bare feet , not a good start,
After picking up as much as we could we turned our attention to the mystery of the lost cannon.
the water at the ramp looked a little green and there was a strong northerly breeze across the lake, we set of across the lake to a likely spot but the visibility in the water was poor and a speed boat with a skier in tow kept sending bow waves at us and some fishers on shore.
But alas it was no good, even though there was no sign of the algae that was present at the start of summer the water is green and after several days of sunshine I fear it will bloom again .
I think the next attempt to find the cannon will be mid winter when the water is at its best.
Tomorrow I am off to the Gellibrand to inspect some fish hotels hopefully with more success that today.
