The orange fence
Orange border fencing

The warm weather,foggy dew and scarce ice fishermen on the lake create a Samuel Beckett “Waiting for Godot” backdrop - without a bench.
Pools of water speckle the diffused grey lakescape and an occasional premordial ice house sets in solitary protest.
The conceptual artist Christo created “The Walking Fence”. It was an airy wandering fence heavy on public and private financing, light on functionality. On Lake Minnetonka bright orange border fencing runs along stretches of blackened ice and broken areas of shoreline. The fence is moderately functional. It protects marina owners from lawsuits. Occassionally it deters a wanderer.
