Frog pond ice survey Jan 29

I did drive by’s of smaller ponds we have sailed or skated on on in mid coast area in past.

Mace’s Pond, Rocky, & Tolman Pond, Rockport. South Pond & North Pond, Warren. Pemaquid, (both ends) & Biscay Ponds, Waldonoro and Damariscotta. All have varying degrees of Small Pox with extensive scab formation. South Pond was the worst with a maze of petrified snow mobile tracks. Pemaquid had a narrow band of smooth ice on the far South East shore across from the public launch ramp off Rte 1 featuring a solitary skater. The North end of Chicky here is the best of the bunch, maybe 200X300 yards of widely scattered scabs providing a play pen for learning how to sail the “Cheapskate” which was enjoyable enough to repeat, at least I left the boat on the ice. It looks like Walker is the place to be or maybe Eagle Lake on Mt. Desert, any spies there these days? No wind yesterday anyway.
