Because our cabin floats, it moves back and forth, and up and down with the lake. Steel cables anchor us in place, and log booms provides a floating barrier to protect us from wind waves and wakes.
We augment the boom in front with stumps. They are decorative and the deep roots help settle rough water.
Sometimes the lake decides to take our stumps back. A few weeks ago, we had strong winds. The next morning I saw that Stumpy was missing.
We wish him well and thank him for the protective service he provided while visiting our cabin home. -- Margy
