    Lake traffic

    Just take care not to buy in advance tickets for the lake trips ... if the weather turns bad you can only put your tickets in the trashcan and you'll not be refunded.
    Check the website for more information about tripping the lake.

    mind the floods

    officially floods happen every 10 years here - but well, something's going sadly wrong. Over the last 10 years span we've had 3 floods - but they call it a coincidence... go figure! Anyway, should you be heading this way during a long rainy spell, keep in mind that we can - and do - flood regularily. it's no big tragedy, we're used to it, and even like it - it kinda breaks the monotony. But do bring rubber wellies to navigate the town. Don't worry, you won't look silly!
