RESTON, Va. -- You have to wonder how some things end up in certain places. Take for example, the odd assortment of items that found their way to the bottom of Lake Anne. A statue of Buddha, a small cannon, a 1966 license plate, a lantern, a Dell laptop, a dog toy and the frame of a Kawasaki motorcycle were discovered when Reston’s oldest lake was lowered in order to make repairs to the concrete spillway. See all the photos.
Brian Petty, Reston Association Watershed Specialist found the items.
“As I surveyed the exposed lake bottom on foot, I found interesting lost treasures. Some items are quite old,” Petty said.
He cleaned them as best he could and took some pictures. Petty also found an assortment of what appeared to be bowls and flower vases.
