Witch Hole Pond

I was looking at the 1874 map by CB Martin and I saw that Witch Hole Pond used to be called "The Pond of Witch Hollow."  Now, I know that's not a huge departure from an original name, but coupled with learning that Witch Hole's 28 acre pond is home to a  fish called a ninespine stickleback, I suddenly felt like I was in an enchanted storybook. Adding to this enchantment is a particular beaver, that I call "BB" for Bold Beaver.  BB has been very busy leaving a legacy for the younger generation. There is one large tree down and just 20 yards to the south BB has begun working on a triple trunked tree. It's epic and a total marvel for me on my twice weekly trips around. So, now I'm off to write the story titled The Pond of Witch Hollow: BB and her Ninespined Stickleback.
