This is a view of the judges stand, with the bleachers and scoreboards. The thing about Lake Casitas was, it's a reservoir with natural surroundings and normally no boating is allowed. After the Olympics were over, everything had to be removed, even the sod, flowers and other landscaping.
Another view, with long colored floats to keep to the multi-pastel theme of LA. They are anchored to a floating walkway between the athletes and boat storage areas and the spectators and administrative areas.
