Manchaug Revisited

Manchaug is about a mile away … and one of my favorite places to shoot. From its quaint little post office, to the pond, the dam and lively creek that flows downstream, it’s beautiful.

Ducks and geese nest along the shores and there’s a day care center right by the falls for parents who don’t worry excessively about their small children wandering off.

The falls are splendid. The falls have been dammed and the flow of water is controlled to prevent flooding.

In times of drought, the flow is contained to keep the pond full. They have boat races on the pond.
