Went out for a boat ride yesterday. The Hunters' Nest channel was still blocked. First there is a bog a few feet to the east along the shore. At this time it does not affect entry to/fro the channel. However, there is a bog just inside the channel that does block entry. It seems to be somewhat split in the middle. I would guess someone tried to get through the center, but failed. The middle portion is matted down tails. A canoe might make it through, but one cannot see water only matted tails. The other two parts of the bog--those on either side of the trampled down middle section--- are not that large. A good-sized boat or two may be able to push/pull them out. My small boat could not do so.
While water is up a bit, I do not see these bogs moving out on their own. However there are some strong winds called for this week. Depending on the direction, the matter could be better or worse.
The channels to Bass Bay are open.
