If you look thru the pictures you'll notice the orange floats that once marked the farthest point out into the water for the designated swim line are now sitting on dirt a good 20-30 feet from what is now the edge of the water.
Also you'll see what was once a submerged shell of a burned boat is now well above the water line as are a plethora of tires, concrete blocks, cans and bottles.
Irony prevails. I even saw "NO Wake" Buoys lying on dirt 30-40 feet from the water's edge.
Current estimates are that it could take as long as three years of average rainfall for Lake Lanier to return to its previous level.
